15 Down, 37 To Go "The Wolverton Bible" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

You wouldn't expect one of Mad magazine's leading cartoonists to illustrate the Bible, but Basil Wolverton was once commissioned by the Worldwide Church of God to illustrate the Old Testament. In The Wolverton Bible, these illustrations are collected along with Wolverton's son Monte's commentary, and the resulting book is a treasure. Wolverton's pen captures the gory glory of the Old Testament Christian god, and the commentary affords glimpses into this idiosyncratic artist's life.

Once again, Fantagraphics Books comes through with a book that not only beautifully presents an artist's work, but also illuminates the person behind the art.

My next book is Daniel Johnston, by Daniel Johnston, a collection of the singer-songwriter's artwork.
