Gods' Man: A Novel in Woodcuts
Courier Corporation, 1 mar. 2004 - 160 páginas
The most important work of American artist and illustrator Lynd Ward, "Gods' Man" is a powerfully evocative novel, told entirely through woodcuts. Ward (1905 85), in employing the concept of the wordless pictorial narrative, acknowledged his predecessors the European artists Frans Masereel and Otto Nuckel. Released the week of the 1929 stock market crash, "Gods' Man" was the first of six woodcut novels that Ward produced over the next eight years. It presents the artist's struggles in a world characterized by both innocence and corruptions and can be considered a forerunner of the contemporary graphic novel, popularized by artists such as Daniel Clowes.

Beautiful, political in a Communist-before-we-found-out-that-Stalin-sucks way, and haunting. Fantastic. Took my first tattoo from this book. Leer reseña completa
