Lynd Ward's wordless, Depression-era woodcut novels

Library of America has announced a slipcased two-volume set collecting Lynd Ward's gorgeous, Depression-era woodcut "novels" — wordless, book-length stories told in stark imagery. The set is edited by Art Spiegelman, and LoA has a short interview (PDF) with Spiegelman on Ward's work.

See LoA's Lynd Ward page for more info on the books (with visuals) or pre-order a copy at Amazon.
