Wordless Books: The Original Graphic Novels

Neue Galerie Exclusive

By David A. Beronä

Wordless books- stories from the early part of the twentieth century told in black and white woodcuts- were imaginatively illustrated, powerful, and iconic, and as relevant to the world of today as they were when they were first published. David A. Beronä places these works in the context of their time, and in the context of ours, creating a scholarly collection of significance in the burgeoning field of comics and comics history. Wordless Books: The Original Graphic Novels covers the period of 1918 through 1951, and includes the works of: Helena Bochořáková-Dittrichová, William Gropper, Milt Gross, Laurence Hyde, Frans Masereel, Otto Nückel, Giacomo Patri, e.o plauen, István Szegedi Szüts, Myron Waldman, and Lynd Ward.
