Before there were graphic novels, before comics were read by adults and at a time when "pictorial narratives"(Ward's term) were a novelty, Lynd Ward made a series of extraordinary, wordless woodcut novels, which are now collected in this handsome 2 volume set from the Library of America. Heavily allegorical and influenced by both by older masters like Durer and contemporary German expressionist films ("Nosferatu," "Cabinet of Dr. Caligari"), Ward's books are a uniquely immersive experience. This edition includes three novels, short essays by Ward and an introduction by Art "Maus" Spiegelman. A welcome rediscovery.
