Prelude to a million years
Prelude to a Million Years and Song Without Words: Two Graphic Novels by Lynd WardOne of the twentieth centurys finest engravers, Lynd Ward created remarkable woodcuts that resonate in both the heart and the imagination. His dramatic images present complete, self-contained narratives in both of these wordless tales. Prelude to a Million Years unfolds against the backdrop of the Great Depression, portraying in thirty illustrations a sculptors struggles in an industrial society. Song Without Words explores one womans emotional journey through pregnancy and childbirth in a series of twenty-one images described by the author as a kind of prose poem.
Wards memorable works have been honored with such prestigious awards as the Library of Congress Award, the National Academy of Design Print Award, the New York Times Best Illustrated Award, the Caldecott Medal, and the Regina Award. An introduction by woodcut historian David A. Berona places these stories within the context of Wards career and the graphic arts world of the 1930s.
Tony Banks - Prelude to a Million Years (Official)
The symbol-rich story tells of a sculptor who, in his quest for ideal beauty, neglects the reality of the struggles of his neighbors in the depths of the Great Depression. The engravings are done in a softer Art Deco style in contrast to the German Expressionism -influenced artwork of Ward's earlier works.
