Historian, librarian, and scholar, David Beronä’s collection is one of the most complete representations of the scope of wordless books. The material in this exhibit ranges from the groundbreaking early woodcut novels of Frans Masreel and Lynd Ward, to contemporary artists like Sue Coe and George Walker, as well as cartoonists such as Shaun Tan, Peter Kuper, and more – each harnessing the universal power of visual storytelling.
