ISLAND OF MEMORY by T. Edward Bak

ISLAND OF MEMORY, T Edward Bak’s first volume of WILD MAN – The Natural History of Georg Wilhelm Steller, examines the human condition within the natural order at the extremes of the unknown. Part natural history, part adventure yarn and part experimental narrative, this 72-page full-color fever dream is the artistic realization of Bak’s inquiry into the socio-ecological consequences of empire. 72 pages, 6″ x 9″, full color and greywash interiors, perfectbound paperback. (Floating World Comics)

(GEORG WILHELM STELLER (1709-1746) journeyed as a naturalist with the historic Second Kamchatka Expedition, which brought the Russians to Siberia and Alaska in the 18th century. Steller’s first-hand descriptions of the natural and human worlds at this crossroads of continents illuminate the unique confluence of culture and ecology binding North America to Asia via the North Pacific.)
