Pictures Showing What Happens on Each Page of Thomas Pynchons Novel Gravitys Rainbow by Zak Smith

Thomas PynchonsGravitys Rainbow(1973), set in an alternative-universe version of World War II, has been called a modernFinnegans Wakefor its challenging language, wild anachronisms, hallucinatory happenings, and fever-dream imagery. WithGravitys Rainbow Illustrated,artist Zak Smith at once eases and expands readers experience of the book. A leading exponent of punk-based, DIY art, Smith here presents his most ambitious project to date an art book exactly as long as the work its interpreting: 760 drawings, paintings, photos, and less definable images in 760 pages. Extraordinary tableaux of the detritus of war a burned-out Knigstiger tank, a melted machine gun coexist alongside such phantasmagoric Pynchon inventions as the stumbling bird and Girgori the octopus. Smith has stated his aim to be as literal as possible in interpretingGravitys Rainbow,but his images are as imaginative and powerfully unique as the prose they honor.
