Summary, etc. note: Francoise Mouly, an editor and publisher of uncommon taste and creativity, and an artist in her own right, has spent nearly four decades transforming comics. With her husband, Art Spiegelman, she founded the landmark magazine RAW, which showcased artists such as Chris Ware, Charles Burns and Sue Coe, and, along with Spiegelman's Maus, brought an avant-garde sensibility to the popular art form. As art editor of the New Yorker since 1993, Mouly has remade the face of that venerable magazine with covers that capture political and social upheavals, from the black-on-black cover after 9/11 to the Obamas' pre-election fist-bump. And now, with TOON Books, she is at the forefront of a new wave of comics-making for children. Based on exclusive interviews with Mouly, Spiegelman, and a pantheon of comics artists, In Love With Art is both the first book-length portrait of this female pioneer in a male-dominated industry and a rare, behind-the-scenes look at some of today's most iconic images.
