|Notes:||Six wordless woodcut novels by Lynd Ward. Art Spiegelman's essay "Reading pictures" is printed as an introduction to both volumes.
Title from case in which the two volumes are enclosed.
"From the eve of the Great Depression to the onset of World War II, Lynd Ward, America's first great graphic novelist, bore witness to the roiling, dizzying national scene as both a master printmaker and a socially committed storyteller. His medium of expression, the wordless 'novel in woodcuts, ' was his alone in the United States, and he quickly brought it from bold iconic infancy to a still unrivaled richness of drama, characterization, imagery, and technique"--Dust jacket flap.
