Details

The life of graphic novel artist Lynd Ward (1905–1985) is told by author and scholar David A. Beronä in a series of vignettes that are accompanied by woodcut prints illustrating the story. Seven contemporary artists provide the original woodcut prints. The illustrators include Olivier Deprez, Jules Remedios Faye, Drew Grasso, Art Hazelwood, Frances Jetter, Billy Simms, Kurt Brian Webb.

The vignettes include the childhood of the artist, his marriage, his graphic woodcut novels, and his later illustrated children's books. Graphic novel artist Eric Drooker provides an introduction to both Lynd Ward as well as the author.
