Why read it?

1 author picked Destin as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This is a new edition of Otto Nückel’s wordless novel that was originally published in 1930 with the title Destiny by Farrar & Rinehart. Although this edition is in French with an introduction by Seth Tobocman and an afterword by yours truly, it is a nicely produced hardcover with new information about the life of this mysterious German artist. I would be happy to provide an English translation of my postface for anyone who wishes to email me a request. The book is very readable and demonstrates Nückel’s unique skill of engraving a very poignant visual narrative (on lead blocks).

From George's list on woodcut graphic novels.
