Image of Tom Gauld: Baking with Kafka

Cartoonist for the Guardian, The New York Times, and New Scientist, and creator of Goliath, Mooncop, and You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack, Tom Gauld, celebrates his latest book Baking with Kafka. Tom’s characteristic single page works are riotously funny and take us on a journey through literature and history, and into a wholly recognisable cartoon universe. Channelling the likes of Edward Gorey, Tom crafts a dry, absurd, and often pathos-filled humour keyed in directly to our contemporary world.

Tom will be giving an illustrated talk, exploring the inspiration, creation, and content of his cartoons, giving an excellent opportunity to hear one of the foremost cartoonists of our times shed light on his art, and, of course, to engage more deeply with some outright stylish, witty and hilarious work.

Collecting your event book voucher

As our event book vouchers have a redeemable value, we do not post them out. They are available for collection from the bookshop at any point before the event (and there is often a slight incentive with this option), or alternatively they can be collected on the door of the event.

Group bookings

If you require more than 10 places, please contact the bookshop for a group booking so that we can arrange to seat you together.

How our event book vouchers work

The full price of your voucher is an advance book deposit against a copy of the book featured at the event, which also guarantees admittance for one person. Event book vouchers are redeemable at any point up to and including the day of the event, but not afterwards.

Refunds and Exchanges

In order to maintain the great value of our event book vouchers, we have to reduce administration to an absolute minimum. This means that we aren’t able to refund or exchange event book vouchers.
