Charles Vess' Book of Ballads & Sagas

Friend Reviews. Vess's art was really fascinating in this one. I wonder if Vess is a fan of the folk-rock band Steeleye Span, which has done its own versions of quite a number of the ballads included. The listing you're looking for has ended.

Several even had twists in their illustrative interpretation, such as the "Twa Corbies" being set in contemporary with Vess's crow girls and "Tam-Lin" being more a devious spirit rather than an elfin love. It is all here: lust and humorall the things that keep us up at night. Overall an enjoyable read? Archived from the original on May 3.

Retrieved December 12, mythology-from-o. The book is worth the time for the artwork alone - it won an Eisner award; high praise in the world of graphic novels and comic books. World Fantasy Award - Artist.

Songs, obviously, have a musical component. Ballads, specifically, have more than just words; they have stories to tell as well.

The pen-and-ink illustrations are a delight, though I wouldn't expect less from Charles Vess. I searched out this book after encountering Charles Vess' illustrations in The Ladies of Grace Adieuand found that I prefer the vharles vignettes that accompany each ballad in this book to the graphic novel-style action scenes. Another episode of Skade rounds out the book. Sep 22, Malu Vargas rated it it was amazing.
