A gorgeous, collectible hardcover edition of Will Eisner’s pioneering graphic novel to celebrate the author’s 100th birthday.

Published in 1978, Will Eisner’s revolutionary literary work A Contract With God marked the invention of the modern graphic novel. A mesmerising fictional chronicle of a universal American experience, it inspired a generation of sequential artists. Through a quartet of interwoven stories, A Contract With God expresses the joy, exuberance, tragedy and drama of life on the mythical Dropsie Avenue in the Bronx. Crafted with the highest fidelity to Eisner’s artistic vision, this edition uses new, high-resolution reproductions of Eisner’s original artwork, bringing new clarity and immediacy to Eisner’s writing, illustration and composition.
