II've been a fan of cowboy stories for a while now though I used to hate Sunday afternoons at home when I was a kid when my dad would put Bonanza on....only the snooker could have been any worse.
I recently read a book called The Brothers Sisters by Patrick deWitt, if you've ever read Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy, it's not half as gruesome or harrowing as that. It's about two outlaw brothers who play good cop/bad cop through the story and it's a road trip (on knackered out horses most of the time)
The illustrations are by a guy called Dan Stiles who works on a lot of designs for rock bands,I love his style which is reminiscent of stuff by Saul Bass - check out more of Stiles' work. http://www.danstiles.com
