Ballad

By Blexbolex
"Ballad" is a story, and like all great stories it deepens with each retelling.
"Ballad" builds over seven sequences. The first has three images: school, path, home. The next builds upon the first, giving us: school, street, path, forest, home. The next five sequences take up this story, but with new words and images that nearly double the previous sequence. Here a child encounters the world as he returns home from school, and we see his small world become enormous. This story is as old as the world. It happens every day.
Blexbolex is a bold, highly talented graphic artist. In addition to creating comics, he's been internationally acclaimed for "Seasons," selected as a 2012 "New York Times Book Review" Best Illustrated Book of the Year; and "People."


    REVIEW QUOTES
"This book is unlike anything I've ever seen before...It's a puzzle, a fairy tale, an adventure, a love story, made with words and pictures used in a new, utterly beguiling way. The silk-screened images, made with unbelievable fluorescent ink, will draw you in and will leave you breathless till the end."--Brian Selznick, author of "The Invention of Hugo Cabret"
