We're overdue for a few additions to the graphic novels collection. Time for a bit of catch-up - but this is one of those graphic novel posts that doesn't get a catchy byline.

Eufrosinia Kersnovskaya was a writer and illustrator who created an extraordinary example of story-building and visual drama, which pre-dates current trends in using dynamic visual recording as an aid to learning, understanding and the enjoyment of events and conferences. Her work is available for free online; but looking through the material does involve quite a lot of clicking back and forth.

However, English text and decent-sized images are in there and it's well worth persisting if you're enthusiastic about illustration and/ or compelling storytelling.

The work stands-out on the basis of its artistic merit, but the pages also offer a compelling, and distressing, account of the history it records. The copyright holder is rightly concerned about how the work is used, so no images are getting posted at this stage.
