An Age of License
An Age of License [a Travelogue] By Knisley, Lucy Graphic Novel - 2014

In 2011 Comic artist Lucy Knisley says yes to a European book tour. She's just got out of a long term relationship, has sort of started up an international one, has recently moved to New York, and can't really afford the trip but she looks forward to it anyway. It's a travelogue but at the same time Lucy is very preoccupied with what she should be doing at home as well as in her life. The drawings are simple, almost cute, but there is a lot crowding around text wise around the images as Lucy goes back and forth about enjoying the vacation and almost feeling bad about it.
