Carting his lovingly handcrafted rugs to town, Mendleman discovers that the shop that carried his wares has been taken over by a new, bottom-line-oriented owner who stocks only cheaply made merchandise. With the disappearance of his patron, Mendleman's world is upended. His only recourse is to sell his rugs for a pittance to a grand new emporium. Although he must accept the insult for the survival of his young family, the blow drives the sensitive artist to the breaking point.

One of the better graphic novels I've seen recently.
While some graphic novels have beautiful drawings/renderings, the characters often strike me as not well developed and the plots bordering on juvenile.
Market Day shows us a complex character struggling with himself and the changing environment around him. Form and content are wonderfully integrated in this graphic novel.

Really lovely illustrations, but the story was weak, and the protagonist unlikeable.

very bleak and grim
colour pallete used by author reflects this.
