The Book of Genesis - R. Crumb

The subversive comic book artist R. Crumb has illustrated The Book Of Genesis (W.W. Norton, $24.95). This odd pairing has produced an unexpectedly beautiful rendering of the Bible. Every line is illustrated, frame by frame. Crumb fills in actions that are merely suggested by the language. The words take on new meaning; the pictures help interpret the content and provide understanding beyond the literal text. Crumb’s depictions emphasize the humanity of the figures. The illustrations are hypnotic and fascinating. Most important, by focusing on a line-by-line reading, an experienced Bible reader absorbs the text with more care.
