Dante’s Gone Graphic!

700-year-old epic poetry doesn't generally come to mind after hearing about a new graphic adaptation. However, it's time to think again, because Seymor Chwast's adaptation of Dante's Divine Comedy is turning lots of heads. Including those of trade reviewers.

"With his signature mix of humor, artistry, and high-level design, he conveys a breathtaking amount of information in clear black and white line drawings. It all works seamlessly as Chwast does a stunning job of telling Dante's story in his own brilliant style." Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"An influential, revolutionary illustrator, Chwast meets his match in one of the cornerstones of Western literature. The artist makes the Divine Comedy irresistibly comic and inspirationally transcendent." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
