Gigantic Novel Comics

The Angelika Taschen Comic Series by Artist Joe McKendry is Awesome

— March 20, 2012 — Lifestyle
These ingenious and quick-witted renditions by artist Joe McKendry is a comic series based on Angelika Taschen's favorite novels and where she read them. These comic book-inspired depictions look into the life of Taschen and illustrate the feelings she had when reading novels that helped shape her life.

McKendry depicts Taschen and the novels she read in a very detail-oriented and quirky way. The drawings evoke Taschen’s feelings and surroundings. One of many McKendry illustrations show a mundane hospital room with the bed frame as a giant Les Miserables book by Victor Hugo. Taschen describes her moment at a hospital in Cologne and reading the book to help the inescapable boredom. 

As a pioneering book publisher, Taschen grew up with prominent authors in her life and was always fond of reading. “I always knew my life would never be boring as long as there were books around to read and inspire me,” Taschen says. Take a look through these Angelika Taschen comic series to get a sense of novels that colored her life.
