The First in Line is the sketchbook of Mattias Adolfsson. It's a 160-page hardcover. The cover art is done in watercolour, and beautifully printed on the fabric-like cover.
It collects the wonderful sketches he has posted on his blog. The drawings are lovely, imaginative and inspiring. Ideas are wacky and whimsical. Line work is detailed and the subdued watercolour works really well. It's real fun to look different characters and creations, and their personalities.
I've been a long time follower of his blog, occasionally going back to the archives to look at old works. It's great to see this book finally out. Highly recommended for art and sketchbook lovers.
The book's published and distributed by Sanatorium Förlag. So it's not sold on Amazon. It's priced at US$48 including shipping, which is quite pricey. You can buy the book from the link on his blog at mattiasa.blogspot.com
