    Archival Quality is a graphic novel about Celeste ?Cel? Walden who?s battling mental health issues on her own. Due to her condition, Cel was fired from her work as a library assistant; she searched for a new job online and found an archivist opening in the Logan Museum. She was...

    Archival Quality is an interesting and somewhat dark story about a young woman who becomes the overnight archivist librarian for an asylum-turned-library, where dreams of a strange and tortured young woman lead her on a chase for answers and a way to offer reprieve to a broken, lost sp...

    Ohh, where do I begin with this. I really did want to love this book, the idea and the premise were so promising and I was hooked... I did appriciate that it dealt with mental health, th diverse characters and the whole idea of thw museum and its macabre secret, but my appreciati...

    Cel has just lost her job at the library. It's inferred that she had some kind of mental breakdown at work. She finds a new job as an archivist at a medical museum. It's a very odd job in that there's an apartment for her to stay at in the basement and she has to do the archiving by he...

    Trigger Warning - mental health. This should have been the perfect graphic novel for me. I hate writing negative reviews and I want you to know there are plenty of really positive reviews too. I would encourage you, if you?re considering reading this graphic novel, to check out so...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley This was a really nice story that managed to be cute and creepy at the same time. I liked how it dealt with Celeste's mental illness and also tied it back into the ghost story and talked a bit about the history of how we've handled ...

    Hoo boy, there's a lot wrong here. The main character is insufferable instead of sympathetic. The characters don't start investigating the mystery until the last quarter of the book. The art is so shaky that character's pupils are sometimes going in violently opposing directions. Worst...

    I received an e-arc from netgally for an honest review. The main reason I drawn to this graphic novel was because I work in a museum and the prospect of dealing with haunted objects is something we joke about. The story centers around Cel, who lost her job in a library due to he...

    This, was not what I was expecting... yes it is a ghost story inside of an archive, but more than that, it's a story about overcoming fears and personal demons. An and fast paced graphic novel, thank you Netgalley for providing me this arc. ...

    Solid 3.5 stars I don't know who bottom 2 girls are but 3 standing are, Molly, Gina and Caleste I really liked the cast here, all of them. All had their flaws but it made book more compelling in the end. I think blurb is pretty accurate and all you need to know to get into thi...

    I enjoyed this book for its representation of mental health and how it can effect someone and those around them when they are at their lowest. It highlights how important it is to have those people in your life who are there for you when you do get to that low point. ...

    The cover and title are a little misleading! I was expecting a paranormal romance about archives, instead got a slightly spooky mystery about mental health and the legacy of psychiatric sanatoriums. I would have preferred the former, but the latter was alright. I don't think the art wi...

    I mistakenly thought this book was aimed towards much younger readers, but it has a rather dark plot about the damages of ableism in regards to those with mental illness. Don't let the soft, cute artwork trick you! There's some really interesting stuff being discussed in these pages, t...

    All of my librarian friends need to read this graphic novel about books/archives/libraries/information and who owns information. It was fascinating and spooky and relatable. It also has a very realistic depiction of mental health and how people with mental illnesses are treated in the ...

    Aaaaah, I just won a copy of this book in a giveaway! :D ...

    I apologize for being so blunt, but frankly, this book sucks. The one thing that really stuck out to me was the illustrations. Especially compared to the other graphic novels I have read, the drawing style is under-developed and shows ambiguous emotions, as well as being not-so-aesthet...

    This book kind of fell flat for me. Positives first: diverse characters (in terms of race and sexual orientation), dealing with mental health issues, a female lead (who's also a librarian), a ghost story, and an old mental health institution. Negatives: First, the way the character...

    I wouldn?t say this book is semi-autobiographical, but the author does know about mental illness and archiving medical history. Cel, the main character, has such a job, and the mental illness, but she loves the structure of doing this sort of work. If you pick up and only read ...

    Wowwie did I love this book. So many moments showing Celeste struggling with the effects of her depression and insecurity feel like they were taken directly out of my brain. The artwork is adorable, mixing with the darker content of the story to create a striking balance. Ivy Noelle We...

    On the 5-star side of 4.5-stars. I picked this after hearing about it directly from one of the authors on a library webinar and getting so excited to read it that waiting for release was miserable! I knew it focused on librarian/archives work and the art is colorful, expressive, and in...

    This is a somewhat slight and subplot-heavy book, and it was less queer than I expected given the cover art (though the presence of adorable lesbian side characters is not to be discounted). Its heart, however, is quite captivating. As a story about dealing with depression and mental i...

    cute, LGBTQ+ friendly, shows depression in a real light, quick and beautiful read ...

    Oh my, I'm a FANTASTIC, fabulously dressed librarian in print as well. I didn't know that I had my own comic. Some details have been changed to protect the innocent, but really nothing significant!! ...

    Oy.... Where to even start with this.... I guess I will start with the most obvious thing - the art in this does not match the story AT ALL. The art is VERY juvenile, which gives the graphic novel the immediate appearance of being something that should be aimed at teens or even twee...

    While I very much enjoyed the story, the art style wasn?t my thing, hence the 4 stars. The story focuses on Celeste, who after losing her previous job due to a mental breakdown, has come to work as an archive assistant at a medical museum (pretty unrealistic, seeing as she doesn?...

    Sometimes you root for the ghost. (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through NetGalley.) Celeste Walden has fallen on hard times. She's struggled with anxiety and depression for most of her life, and a recent breakdown cost Cel her dream job as a librarian. So w...

    Archival Quality is a graphic novel about Celeste ?Cel? Walden who?s battling mental health issues on her own. Due to her condition, Cel was fired from her work as a library assistant; she searched for a new job online and found an archivist opening in the Logan Museum. She was...

    Archival Quality is an interesting and somewhat dark story about a young woman who becomes the overnight archivist librarian for an asylum-turned-library, where dreams of a strange and tortured young woman lead her on a chase for answers and a way to offer reprieve to a broken, lost sp...

    Ohh, where do I begin with this. I really did want to love this book, the idea and the premise were so promising and I was hooked... I did appriciate that it dealt with mental health, th diverse characters and the whole idea of thw museum and its macabre secret, but my appreciati...

    Cel has just lost her job at the library. It's inferred that she had some kind of mental breakdown at work. She finds a new job as an archivist at a medical museum. It's a very odd job in that there's an apartment for her to stay at in the basement and she has to do the archiving by he...

    Trigger Warning - mental health. This should have been the perfect graphic novel for me. I hate writing negative reviews and I want you to know there are plenty of really positive reviews too. I would encourage you, if you?re considering reading this graphic novel, to check out so...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley This was a really nice story that managed to be cute and creepy at the same time. I liked how it dealt with Celeste's mental illness and also tied it back into the ghost story and talked a bit about the history of how we've handled ...

    Hoo boy, there's a lot wrong here. The main character is insufferable instead of sympathetic. The characters don't start investigating the mystery until the last quarter of the book. The art is so shaky that character's pupils are sometimes going in violently opposing directions. Worst...

    I received an e-arc from netgally for an honest review. The main reason I drawn to this graphic novel was because I work in a museum and the prospect of dealing with haunted objects is something we joke about. The story centers around Cel, who lost her job in a library due to he...

    I apologize for being so blunt, but frankly, this book sucks. The one thing that really stuck out to me was the illustrations. Especially compared to the other graphic novels I have read, the drawing style is under-developed and shows ambiguous emotions, as well as being not-so-aesthet...

    This book kind of fell flat for me. Positives first: diverse characters (in terms of race and sexual orientation), dealing with mental health issues, a female lead (who's also a librarian), a ghost story, and an old mental health institution. Negatives: First, the way the character...

    I wouldn?t say this book is semi-autobiographical, but the author does know about mental illness and archiving medical history. Cel, the main character, has such a job, and the mental illness, but she loves the structure of doing this sort of work. If you pick up and only read ...

    Cel Walden is having some mental health troubles. As a result, she loses her job at the library, but soon finds gainful employment as an archivist at the Logan Museum, a little-known repository of medical history. The new job is not quite what Cel imagined it might be: she's required t...

    Celeste, or Cel, is feeling adrift after losing her beloved library job. When a mysterious job at a local medical museum opens up, Cel jumps at the chance to do something like what she loves. The job is straightforward, but the circumstances are odd. She lives in an apartment above the...

    Wowwie did I love this book. So many moments showing Celeste struggling with the effects of her depression and insecurity feel like they were taken directly out of my brain. The artwork is adorable, mixing with the darker content of the story to create a striking balance. Ivy Noelle We...

    On the 5-star side of 4.5-stars. I picked this after hearing about it directly from one of the authors on a library webinar and getting so excited to read it that waiting for release was miserable! I knew it focused on librarian/archives work and the art is colorful, expressive, and in...

    This is a somewhat slight and subplot-heavy book, and it was less queer than I expected given the cover art (though the presence of adorable lesbian side characters is not to be discounted). Its heart, however, is quite captivating. As a story about dealing with depression and mental i...

    I apologize for being so blunt, but frankly, this book sucks. The one thing that really stuck out to me was the illustrations. Especially compared to the other graphic novels I have read, the drawing style is under-developed and shows ambiguous emotions, as well as being not-so-aesthet...

    This book kind of fell flat for me. Positives first: diverse characters (in terms of race and sexual orientation), dealing with mental health issues, a female lead (who's also a librarian), a ghost story, and an old mental health institution. Negatives: First, the way the character...

    Archival Quality is an interesting and somewhat dark story about a young woman who becomes the overnight archivist librarian for an asylum-turned-library, where dreams of a strange and tortured young woman lead her on a chase for answers and a way to offer reprieve to a broken, lost sp...

    Ohh, where do I begin with this. I really did want to love this book, the idea and the premise were so promising and I was hooked... I did appriciate that it dealt with mental health, th diverse characters and the whole idea of thw museum and its macabre secret, but my appreciati...

    Cel has just lost her job at the library. It's inferred that she had some kind of mental breakdown at work. She finds a new job as an archivist at a medical museum. It's a very odd job in that there's an apartment for her to stay at in the basement and she has to do the archiving by he...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley This was a really nice story that managed to be cute and creepy at the same time. I liked how it dealt with Celeste's mental illness and also tied it back into the ghost story and talked a bit about the history of how we've handled ...

    I enjoyed this book for its representation of mental health and how it can effect someone and those around them when they are at their lowest. It highlights how important it is to have those people in your life who are there for you when you do get to that low point. ...

    The cover and title are a little misleading! I was expecting a paranormal romance about archives, instead got a slightly spooky mystery about mental health and the legacy of psychiatric sanatoriums. I would have preferred the former, but the latter was alright. I don't think the art wi...

    I mistakenly thought this book was aimed towards much younger readers, but it has a rather dark plot about the damages of ableism in regards to those with mental illness. Don't let the soft, cute artwork trick you! There's some really interesting stuff being discussed in these pages, t...

    I wouldn?t say this book is semi-autobiographical, but the author does know about mental illness and archiving medical history. Cel, the main character, has such a job, and the mental illness, but she loves the structure of doing this sort of work. If you pick up and only read ...

    Cel has just lost her job at the library. It's inferred that she had some kind of mental breakdown at work. She finds a new job as an archivist at a medical museum. It's a very odd job in that there's an apartment for her to stay at in the basement and she has to do the archiving by he...

    Trigger Warning - mental health. This should have been the perfect graphic novel for me. I hate writing negative reviews and I want you to know there are plenty of really positive reviews too. I would encourage you, if you?re considering reading this graphic novel, to check out so...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley This was a really nice story that managed to be cute and creepy at the same time. I liked how it dealt with Celeste's mental illness and also tied it back into the ghost story and talked a bit about the history of how we've handled ...

    Hoo boy, there's a lot wrong here. The main character is insufferable instead of sympathetic. The characters don't start investigating the mystery until the last quarter of the book. The art is so shaky that character's pupils are sometimes going in violently opposing directions. Worst...

    I received an e-arc from netgally for an honest review. The main reason I drawn to this graphic novel was because I work in a museum and the prospect of dealing with haunted objects is something we joke about. The story centers around Cel, who lost her job in a library due to he...

    This, was not what I was expecting... yes it is a ghost story inside of an archive, but more than that, it's a story about overcoming fears and personal demons. An and fast paced graphic novel, thank you Netgalley for providing me this arc. ...

    Solid 3.5 stars I don't know who bottom 2 girls are but 3 standing are, Molly, Gina and Caleste I really liked the cast here, all of them. All had their flaws but it made book more compelling in the end. I think blurb is pretty accurate and all you need to know to get into thi...

    I enjoyed this book for its representation of mental health and how it can effect someone and those around them when they are at their lowest. It highlights how important it is to have those people in your life who are there for you when you do get to that low point. ...

    The cover and title are a little misleading! I was expecting a paranormal romance about archives, instead got a slightly spooky mystery about mental health and the legacy of psychiatric sanatoriums. I would have preferred the former, but the latter was alright. I don't think the art wi...

    I mistakenly thought this book was aimed towards much younger readers, but it has a rather dark plot about the damages of ableism in regards to those with mental illness. Don't let the soft, cute artwork trick you! There's some really interesting stuff being discussed in these pages, t...

    All of my librarian friends need to read this graphic novel about books/archives/libraries/information and who owns information. It was fascinating and spooky and relatable. It also has a very realistic depiction of mental health and how people with mental illnesses are treated in the ...

    Aaaaah, I just won a copy of this book in a giveaway! :D ...

    I apologize for being so blunt, but frankly, this book sucks. The one thing that really stuck out to me was the illustrations. Especially compared to the other graphic novels I have read, the drawing style is under-developed and shows ambiguous emotions, as well as being not-so-aesthet...

    This book kind of fell flat for me. Positives first: diverse characters (in terms of race and sexual orientation), dealing with mental health issues, a female lead (who's also a librarian), a ghost story, and an old mental health institution. Negatives: First, the way the character...

    I wouldn?t say this book is semi-autobiographical, but the author does know about mental illness and archiving medical history. Cel, the main character, has such a job, and the mental illness, but she loves the structure of doing this sort of work. If you pick up and only read ...

    Cel Walden is having some mental health troubles. As a result, she loses her job at the library, but soon finds gainful employment as an archivist at the Logan Museum, a little-known repository of medical history. The new job is not quite what Cel imagined it might be: she's required t...

    Celeste, or Cel, is feeling adrift after losing her beloved library job. When a mysterious job at a local medical museum opens up, Cel jumps at the chance to do something like what she loves. The job is straightforward, but the circumstances are odd. She lives in an apartment above the...

    Wowwie did I love this book. So many moments showing Celeste struggling with the effects of her depression and insecurity feel like they were taken directly out of my brain. The artwork is adorable, mixing with the darker content of the story to create a striking balance. Ivy Noelle We...

    On the 5-star side of 4.5-stars. I picked this after hearing about it directly from one of the authors on a library webinar and getting so excited to read it that waiting for release was miserable! I knew it focused on librarian/archives work and the art is colorful, expressive, and in...

    This is a somewhat slight and subplot-heavy book, and it was less queer than I expected given the cover art (though the presence of adorable lesbian side characters is not to be discounted). Its heart, however, is quite captivating. As a story about dealing with depression and mental i...

    cute, LGBTQ+ friendly, shows depression in a real light, quick and beautiful read ...

    Oh my, I'm a FANTASTIC, fabulously dressed librarian in print as well. I didn't know that I had my own comic. Some details have been changed to protect the innocent, but really nothing significant!! ...

    Oy.... Where to even start with this.... I guess I will start with the most obvious thing - the art in this does not match the story AT ALL. The art is VERY juvenile, which gives the graphic novel the immediate appearance of being something that should be aimed at teens or even twee...

    While I very much enjoyed the story, the art style wasn?t my thing, hence the 4 stars. The story focuses on Celeste, who after losing her previous job due to a mental breakdown, has come to work as an archive assistant at a medical museum (pretty unrealistic, seeing as she doesn?...

    Sometimes you root for the ghost. (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through NetGalley.) Celeste Walden has fallen on hard times. She's struggled with anxiety and depression for most of her life, and a recent breakdown cost Cel her dream job as a librarian. So w...

    I loved this book! I feel amazing that I read it! So the entire concept is on the protagonist losing her job at the library because she had a breakdown. Cel starts to work at a museum which is haunted! Weird stuff starts to happen and her boyfriend Kyle doesn't believe her. He thinks t...
