"The illustrations in this striking picture book/ graphic novel are made with ripped paper. You can see the frayed edges giving an unexpected softness to an otherwise very graphic style."--"Book-by-its-Cover"
A unique picture-book for adults, "Revolution" is a powerful political allegory in red, black, and white. French artist Sara's simple yet forceful collage art evokes revolt, repression, and war, but also immutable freedom in the face of tyranny. Her torn-paper technique draws the reader into and beyond the struggle for liberty. This English-language edition includes an introductory essay on various people's revolutions and struggles.
Sara is an artist who lives and works in Paris. Her books include "La laisse rouge," "A Quai," and the play "S'envoler." In 2006, pieces from Revolution were shown in several museums in Japan.
