Lynd Ward: Six Novels in Woodcuts

New York Times Sunday Book Review of Six Novels in Woodcuts, a two volume boxed set reproducing Lynd Ward’s “silent novels.” The collection was edited by Art Spiegelman and published by the Library of America.

This looks like a beautiful publication. For anyone interested in the early origins of what is now being toted as the “graphic novel,” Gods’ Man by Lynd Ward is especially worthy of attention.
