Passionate Journey: A Vision in Woodcuts Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Look at these powerful black-and-white figures, their features etched in light and shadow . . . Has not this passionate journey had an incomparably deeper and purer impact on you than you have ever felt before?" — Thomas Mann

Belgian-born Frans Masereel (1889–1972) was one of the greatest woodcut artists of the twentieth century. Ingeniously portraying the human experience through dramatic art, this novel-without-words—crafted from 167 intricate woodcuts—is considered to be the Flemish artist's masterpiece.

A feast for the eyes and the imagination, this powerful visual narrative details the life of an ordinary man. From the first bustling frame to the last haunting image, we are deeply drawn into the hero's day-to-day encounters, and discover a spirit in quest—one that we can profoundly relate to, emotionally and intellectually. Through each extraordinarily vivid depiction, readers feel the hero's happiness, grief, awe, and despair.

Synopsis:

This evocative, text-free narrative is crafted from 167 woodcuts. A novel in pictures, we follow our hero through a world of good and evil, love and heartbreak. Introduction by Thomas Mann.
