1st printing. Based on the story by Dante Alighieri. Adapted by Seymour Chwast. Seymour Chwast has long been influenced by Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, having first explored the metaphysical tale of Heaven, Hell, and redemption with a series of posters in the 1960s. In this, Chwast's first graphic novel, Dante and his guide Virgil don fedoras and wander through noir-ish realms of Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, finding both the wicked and the wondrous on their way. From the multifarious torments of the Inferno to the host of delights in Paradise, Chwast's inventive illustrations capture the delirious complexity of this classic of the Western canon. Hardcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11-in., 128 pages, full color. Cover price $20.00.
