Includes bibliographical references.
This volume represents the culmination of a decade-long collaboration between two Swiss graphic artists, M. S. Bastian and Isabelle L. It produces the thirty-two large black-and-white canvases of their graphic sequence of the same name. Together the panels tell a story of apocalypse and the end of the world that amalgamates images inspired by a wide range of eras and art examples, including medieval Tuscan mosaics, renaissance panels, baroque engravings, Meiji-era Japanese prints, and contemporary graphic novels. The thirty-two parts of this 13 metre long painting are gathered in a concertina folder with an essay on apocalyptic motifs by art critic Konrad Tobler printed on the verso.
