Video preview: Be A Nose

Courtesy of Jeff Lester comes this nifty video animated clip for Art Spiegelman’s upcoming collection (three books covering three time periods) of sketchbook material, Be A Nose, to be published by McSweeney’s. Here’s the official pr:

Art Spiegelman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Maus, creator of Wacky Packs and the Garbage Pail Kids, and father of the modern graphic novel (though hes still demanding a blood test), presents this warts-and-all reproduction of his private sketchbooks — and the results are as candid, sharp, and funny as the relentlessly innovative man behind them. BE A NOSE! is a rare glimpse into the secret scribblings of an American original.

Spiegelman is not the father of the modern graphic novel. He may have brought to new levels of respect and so on, but I would call Eisner the father of the modern graphic novel.
