And deal news! Jonathan Eaton at Tilbury House has acquired world rights to the picture books I AM GRAVITY and I AM LIGHT by Henry Herz, follow-ups to the critically acclaimed I AM SMOKE with illustrations by Mercè López, which explore the abstract properties of gravity and light in an unusual and lyrical form.
