Venue: Left Bank Books - Central West End | The Graphic Canon is a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind trilogy that brings classic literatures of the world together with legendary graphic artists and illustrators. Volume 1 takes us on a visual tour from the earliest literature through the end of the 1700s. Along the way, we're treated to eye-popping renditions of the human race's greatest epics, religious literature, Greek and Shakespearean plays, plus a few unexpected twists, such as an Incan play, bawdy essays by Benjamin Franklin, and more. "Information archeologist" Russ Kick guides us through The Graphic Canon at this event.
