I have had a fascination for graphic novels for several years, now. This seemed to blossom the more I got involved in creating my own book arts, as I learned to indulge my creative eye I seemed to crave all things visual, and so graphic novels beckoned to me . . . I have particularly enjoyed The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick (yes, I know the movie Hugo is its big screen adaptation, and a loving one, at that) and Habibi by Craig Thompson. Also Alison Bechdel's Fun Home. And if you are a purist, check out the boxed set of Lynd Ward. Wonderful woodcuts!
