Identifier: CC-46772-49504
Scope and Contents This book was published to accompany the exhibition at the Bodleian Library from June through October 2007. "Celebrated in Italy as the 'Tre Corone' (the 'Three Crowns'), Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio have exerted an immense influence over Western culture...Dante especially, as author of the Divine Comedy, was conspicuous in all aspects of life, from the university classroom to the pulpit, and from the workshops of book-producers to the street...During the last two hundred years there has been an extraordinary revival of British interest in Dante...Even today, Dante's presence in our culture is far-reaching. The contemporary artist, Tom Phillips, reflects on how his own visual work fits into this centuries-old tradition of Dante illustration and scholarship, bringing us up to modern times."

Jimbo in Purgatory: Being a Mis-Recounting of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy in Pictures and Un-Numbered Footnotes (Special Edition) / Panter, Gary ; Joyce J., 2004

 Item
Identifier: CC-43030-45075
Scope and Contents Publishers Weekly: Panter has been a leading figure in underground comics for more than 25 years, and he's had a profound influence on everyone from Chris Ware to Matt Groening. He's generally credited with giving a graphic identity to the L.A. punk scene, and he was the lead designer for the vibrant world of the television show Pee Wee's Playhouse. Like R.

Jimbo, a cross between Candide and Virgil, makes his way through a vast science fiction--like infotainment-testing center constructed as Mount Purgatory.
