U-X-L Graphic Novelists: Profiles of Cutting Edge Authors and Illustrators Edition 1. 3 Volume Set
Publisher: U·X·L | ISBN: 1414404409 | edition 2006 | PDF | 634 pages | 35,5 mb

Grade 6 Up—Following the recent boom in the graphic-novel industry, and the growing acceptance of the genre in schools, this excellent work is the next logical step in reference publishing. Focusing on 75 authors and artists, it provides a solid resource for research, emphasizing influential masters of the field and those who create graphic novels primarily for youth. While not comprehensive, the essays feature a variety of creators, including a number of popular manga artists. Most include a photograph, biographical information, a sidebar listing the subject's best-known works, and a short bibliography of books, periodicals, and Web sites. Entries are written in a straightforward, lively voice that students will enjoy for both research and personal reading. The work downplays the adult materials by individual creators and is clear when materials mentioned are controversial. Also included are a short history of graphic novels, an essay on manga, and an annotated list of graphic-novel publishers

The Oval Portrait: Contemporary Cuban Women Writers and Artists by Soleida Rios
English | April 1st, 2018 | ISBN: 1609405579, 9781609405571 | 218 Pages | True PDF | 2.11 MB

The Oval Portrait was originally published as El retrato ovalado (Ediciones Union, Havana, Cuba, 2015). Editor Soleida Ríos set a difficult task for herself and nearly three dozen other Cuban women writers, artists, and thinkers. She asked each to "choose a mask. With it she spins her story so that her own image appears in the story as well as the connection (always mysterious) and the symbol with which she has chosen to represent herself."
