The book of Genesis Illustrated

£14.99

Product description

"Envisioning the first book of the bible like no one before him, R. Crumb, the legendary illustrator, reveals here the story of Genesis in a profoundly honest and deeply moving way. Originally thinking that he would do a take off of Adam and Eve, Crumb became so fascinated by the Bible’s language, “a text so great and so strange that it lends itself readily to graphic depictions,” that he decided instead to do a literal interpretation using the text word for word in a version primarily assembled from the translations of Robert Alter and the King James bible."

The graphic novel version of Genesis. Very unusual and engrossing.
Adult supervision recommended for minors.
Very good condition. very minor mottling on outside top of pages. All inside pages clean and bright with no damage or inscriptions.
