Paul Gauguin: a life - in graphic novel form

Gauguin: The Other World

Fabrizio Dori

Gauguin: The Other World captures the astonishing life of a man who was by turns a globe-trotting sailor, a brilliant stockbroker and an outcast painter. Fabrizio Dori paints a balanced and absorbing portrait of a fearless artist and flawed human being whose all-consuming passion - for art, for women and for himself - destroyed everything in its path. Gauguin's primitivist paintings won him few admirers in his own lifetime, but his radical break from Impressionism would pave the way for a new generation of artists, among them Pablo Picasso, Joan Míro and Henri Matisse.

A graphic novel account of David Bowie's formative years

Haddon Hall

Nejib

Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, The Thin White Duke: David Bowie had an extraordinary talent for reinvention. But at the beginning of his career, he made the most significant transformation of his life: from “David” to Bowie. In 1969, shortly after the release of his first hit single, David and his girlfriend Angie moved into Haddon Hall, a sprawling Victorian villa in the London suburbs. Part commune, part creative hub, the house became home to a community of musicians, hippies and hangers-on. As egos clashed and parties got out of hand, David kept writing: “Changes,” “Kooks,” “Life on Mars” - songs that would propel him to global fame. Charting Bowie’s personal life, the development of his music and the transformation of his image, Haddon Hall is an evocative portrait of a young artist presiding over a musical revolution.
