Have you ever wondered who your favorite artists admire and who they want to shine a spotlight on? Wonder no longer.

In this first volume of Accolades, a wide range of musicians, composers, and songwriters praise and present their treasured gems. Contributors from Steve Albini to “Weird Al” Yankovic, from Julien Baker to Margo Price, present accolades to cherished colleagues, to amazing actors and authors, to admired activists and athletes, to precious poets and esteemed engineers.

Belgian-based illustrator Tom De Geeter thoughtfully curated this lineup of contributors. He interviewed close to two hundred artists and asked them just these two questions: who do you want to honor and why? De Geeter’s vivid, bold yet delicate line drawings accompany their answers in style and make Accolades a more than exceptional project for you to dive right into.
