Summary:

The "Book of Hours" draws us back through time and into the intimate routines of daily life in the hours before the onslaught of 9/11. Here Walker expresses through images what is too horrific for words, and although the inhabitants of the "Book of Hours" can't imagine the tragedy about to befall them, the reader must dread the slow, uneven countdown that weaves between the pages. The "Book of Hours" juxtaposes the normalcy of telephones, cubicles and sex with the catastrophic consequences of 9/11, and Walker reveals the individual lives and stories affected by and hidden beneath global politics. Through a careful, reverential representation of all the minor tasks that make up a day, the "Book of Hours" pays homage to the small rituals that grant our lives some stability and meaning in the midst of horrific, incomprehensible events. This is not only a remembrance of innocence lost but also a recollection of the historical activism and art genres that had such an important influence on today's graphic novel. Walker contributes to the great woodcut tradition established by the likes of Frans Masereel, Lynd Ward and Otto N?ckel, and shows the endless need to expose and question social injustice through art and narrative.

Summary:

IN THE 1470s, a Picard nobleman called Jean de Carpentin secured the services of one of the most innovative illuminators working in Bruges. Known as the Master of the Dresden Prayer Book after one of his other masterpieces, this artist enriched the pages of Carpentin's book of hours with a rich programme of imagery, including 22 full-page miniatures, 42 historiated initials and 64 boldly coloured borders. Erudite, affecting, and often playful, the Dresden Master's illuminations transformed Jean de Carpentin's hours into one of the most remarkable books of its day. Yet the Carpentin Hours is virtually unknown to scholarship and the wider public, having always remained in private hands. The present study offers a detailed assessment of its contents, purpose and provenance, and its abundant illustrations reveal the Carpentin Hours to be the finest demonstration of the Dresden Master's wit, invention and technical virtuosity.

Summary:

Every road trip is a transformative odyssey. For musicians Eve Haji and Alex Owen, crossing the Great Plains in an unreliable car with stolen instruments in tow, it's a race toward an unknown destination with memory and hallucination in hot pursuit. Behind them lie twisted university politics, frustrated ambitions and unrequited love. Along the way, Mozart and Beethoven accompany their tentative friendship, while an eerie fairytale unfolds in parallel against a backdrop of big spaces and small towns. And ahead? The two haunted eccentrics aren't sure. The mountains? Freedom? Absolution? Perhaps the restoration of hope.
