Hospital through the eyes of patient

One Month Countdown ~ 100 Copies to Give Away!

It’s one month until Spot 12: Five Months in the Neonatal ICU publishes. This unique graphic memoir, sometimes called Graphic Medicine (a visual story about medical-related issues), brings us an intimate portrait of a mother living in the hospital with her baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Author Jenny Jaeckel first published this book in Canada after winning the prestigious Xeric grant in 2008. For the first time on October 7th, 2016 Spot 12 will be available in the US market through a major distributor (Small Press United, a division of IPG).
