"Ward is ranked among the finest American wood engravers of the 20th century." One of the finest American wood engravers of the twentieth century and an outstanding artist of any era, Lynd Ward (1905-85) created a series of fantastic visual novels. The powerful imagery and psychological intensity of his wordless works have elicited comparisons to the writings of Hawthorne, Melville, and Poe, and they have exercised an enormous influence over latter-day graphic novelists. Ward's tutelage included studying under the direction of German woodcut and engraving master Hans Alexander Mueller. He published his first book, "Gods' Man: A Novel in Woodcuts, " in 1929. Like its successors, including "Mad Man's Drum, Gods' Man "consists solely of Ward's woodcuts, telling its story through imagery alone. Ward's hauntingly rendered 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."show more
