Seymour Chwast's First Graphic Novel

We just got the advanced copy of Seymour Chwast's latest book and his first graphic novel, Dante's Divine Comedy coming out in October from Bloomsbury. In his version, Dante and his guide Virgil don fedoras and wander through noir-ish realms of Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, finding both the wicked and the wondrous on their way.In his adaptation of this skewering satire, Chwast creates a visual fantasia that fascinates on every page: From the multifarious torments of the Inferno to the host of delights in Paradise, his inventive illustrations capture the delirious complexity of this classic of the Western canon.
One hundred and twenty-eight pages of delightful drawings, a must-read, a must have from America's living legend.
