The Salon

It’s a double set with Nick Bertozzi this month, with both HOUDINI: THE HANDCUFF KING  and THE SALON. Check out Nick’s Blog.
Set in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Paris, this savvy graphic novel about the friendship and adventures of Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Gertrude and Leo Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Guillaume Apollinaire, and Paul Gauguin gives a fascinating glimpse into the minds and hearts of the modernists. When someone starts tearing the heads off avant-garde painters around Paris, the Steins realize they may be next on the killer’s list. Enlisting the help of their closest friends and colleagues, they set out to put a stop to the ghastly murders. Filled with danger, art history, and daring escapes, this is a wildly ingenious murder-mystery ride through the origins of modern art.
