The Masks by Don Freeman

The Masks is a wordless graphic novel featuring the stunning artwork of the legendary Don Freeman (1908-1978) printed in striking two-color gold and black. Best known for his children’s books (including the classic Corduroy), this hitherto unpublished work shows Don at the height of his graphic expression. With his typical sparse yet all-telling lines, he unfolds a general human story of the clash of joy and suffering, and how this – with compassion – can work through to a happy end. Needing no words, the illustrations alone create a story set on humanity’s stage with a graphic portrayal of humor and emotions that touch everybody.
