Fw: req: Lynd Ward



Lynd worte books using woodcuts.  Approximately 200 hundred pages long,
each a woodcut print telling the storey.  God's Man, maybe his best know,
is a wonderful storey told through the prints Lynd cut and printed.  Frans
Masereel, a German carver, has done several books as well.  A more modern
artist, Drooker, uses scratch boards to tell his storey without words.

There is a very good article in Biblio magazine about this genre of books,
written by David Berona, and published two issues ago I believe.
