With grace, poetry, clarity, and expert knowledge, artist Etienne
Appert brings us a book about the very origins of the art of
illustration-what it means and why it exists. "Why do you draw?" A
simple question by a young boy moves the author to travel with him
down the River of Ink, which flows from the present day back to the
very first illustration drawn by a human. Along the way, they visit
legendary artists of the past and encounter personal tales that
explore the philosophy of communication through drawing. Why do we
draw? It's a simple question with a spellbinding and complex answer
with an entirely new and entertaining look at the history of art.
Also featured is an illustrated interview between Appert and comics
master Scott McCloud (Understanding Comics, The Sculptor) that no
reader should miss!
