"Four rare wordless novels are reproduced here, by some of the greatest woodcut artists from the first half of the 20th century, as a testament to their roles as graphic witnesses. The stories they tell reflect the political and social issues of their times: economic depression, social injustice, war and fear of nuclear annihilation."
