Lynd Ward: Six Novels in Woodcuts

Lynd Ward, Art Spiegelman

This two-volume box-set collects the six woodcut novels, each composed of a single image per page, created by Lynd Ward in the 1920s and 30s. In his entertaining and perceptive introduction, Art Spiegelman attests that Ward ‘is one of only a handful of artists anywhere who ever made a “graphic novel” until the day before yesterday'.

Ward’s work is dense with the stark symbolism of an expressionist and is predominantly concerned with the nature of art on one hand, and the prevailing social and labour issues of the day on the other.

Elegant, harsh, ambitious, flawed and compelling.
