CANCIONES of Federico Garcia Lorca
Foreword by Joost Swarte
Introduction by Christopher Maurer
Federico García Lorca is one of Spain’s foremost cultural and literary figures. In 1927, he published his masterpiece Canciones, a volume of lyrical poetry. Tobias Tak transformed twenty of these poems into a series of richly detailed and inventive comics. With his boundless imagination, Tak’s illustrations add a new depth and energy to Lorca’s poetry. This collection will appeal to lovers of visual art, graphic novels and poetry and aims to bring the colorful and atmospheric landscape of Lorca’s work to a new audience. Includes an introduction by Lorca scholar, editor and translator Christopher Maurer ("The Collected Poems of Lorca").
"Tak's adaptation picks up the playful spirit of Lorca's poems to go beyond simply illustrating the text, creating a delightfully magical hybrid."
"Canciones is a beautiful book that combines outstanding written and graphic imaginations."
