El in­ nito en un junco, de Irene Vallejo, es un canto extraordinario al amor por los libros que ha seducido a millones de personas en todo el mundo. Este libro sobre libros emprende un nuevo vuelo en forma de adaptación grá­ ca a cargo del dibujante Tyto Alba, cuyas excepcionales ilustraciones nos trasladan a los campos de batalla de Alejandro Magno, los palacios de Cleopatra, las primeras librerías y los talleres de copia manuscrita, pero también a las hogueras donde ardieron códices prohibidos, la biblioteca bombardeada de Sarajevo y el laberinto subterráneo de Oxford en el año 2000. Estos dibujos y acuarelas, que cuentan la historia de un artefacto incomparable nacido hace cinco milenios, cuando los egipcios descubrieron el potencial de un junco al que llamaron papiro, nos hacen partícipes de la aventura colectiva de quienes han salvaguardado los libros desde entonces.

«Un precioso testimonio de amor por los clásicos, los libros, las bibliotecas y la lectura». Nuccio Ordine
 
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

ONE OF THE MOST REVELATORY ESSAYS OF OUR TIMES, ADAPTED INTO A GRAPHIC NOVEL

WINNER OF: PREMIO NACIONAL DE ENSAYO · PREMIO DE LA ASOCIACIÓN DE LAS LIBRERÍAS DE MADRID · PREMIO EL OJO CRÍTICO DE NARRATIVA · PREMIO LAS LIBRERÍAS RECOMIENDAN · PREMIO JOSÉ ANTONIO LABORDETA · PREMIO BÚHO AL MEJOR LIBRO · PREMIO ANTONIO SANCHA DE LOS EDITORES · PREMIO ARAGÓN 2021

Irene Vallejo’s loving tribute to the history of written texts has captivated millions of readers around the world. Now, this book about books takes on a new dimension in graphic novel format, illustrated by Tyto Alba. His exceptional drawings bring to life the battles of Alexander the Great, Cleopatra’s palaces, the first bookstores, and the workshops where scribes toiled to produce copies of manuscripts.  In more recent times, they show the bonfires where banned books were burned, the bombed-out library of Sarajevo, and Oxford University’s twenty-first century underground library. Alba’s drawings and watercolors trace the legacy of a technology created five thousand years ago, when the Ancient Egyptians discovered the world-changing potential of a humble reed they called papyrus. In Papyrus: The Invention of Books in the Ancient World, we become participants in a collective adventure alongside those who have created and protected the written word since then.  

“A gorgeous homage to a love for the classics, books, libraries and reading.” - Nuccio Ordine
