David Mazzucchelli’s Asterios Polyp

Master illustrator David Mazzucchelli returns after a decade with his first full length original graphic novel.

Asterios Polyp is the story of a middle-aged, architect and teacher, aesthete and womanizer, whose life comes fully undone when his home is burned to the ground by a bolt of lightning.

Mazzuccelli moves us forward and backward in time using a variety of color pallets and line styles not only to illuminate Polyp’s journey but also to explore design theory, philosophy, and classical mythology.

Asterios Polyp is in stock now and I highly recommend that you check it out.
