Walter  Moers - The City of Dreaming Books – Graphic Novel


The international bestseller as a sumptuous graphic novel

Bookholm is the "City of Dreaming Books", where books are not only gripping or funny but can also make people go crazy or kill them. Walter Moers' fantastic adventure story featuring the young poet Hildegunst von Mythenmetz, who gets to the bottom of the secret of a perfect manuscript, has been capturing the imagination of readers all over the world.

This tale from the realm of adventure that is literature is now available as a sumptuous graphic novel. Walter Moers has spent years adapting the text of his novel and sketched out hundreds of pictures, which Florian Biege has congenially transformed into a brilliant and vividly colourful comic. The result is two amazing volumes, a film-like version of the original novel, complete with a glossary and fold-out panorama tableau (volume 1) and a "Making of" (volume 2).

Volume 2: The Catacombs tells of how Hildegunst has to flee from the Bookling community to escape the wicked book hunters, finally meets the shadow king and sets off back to the surface of Zamonia.

"Like the fabulous first part, The Catacombs is enchanting with its fantastic illustrations and an absolutely captivating story, one that will entrance bibliophiles in particular."
