Wordless books were stories from the early part of the twentieth century told in black and white woodcuts, imaginatively authored without any text. Scholar David A. BeronŠ examines the history of these books and the art and influence of pioneers like Frans Masereel, Otto NŸckel, and Laurence Hyde among others. The images are powerful and iconic, and as relevant to the world today as they were when they were first produced.
