Book Recommendation: Moving Pictures

by Jaye of Thirteenth Story

Stuart Immonen is a well-known Canadian comic artist, responsible for the art behind such great titles such as Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. and Ultimate Spider-Man. Recently he teamed up with his wife, Kathryn Immonen, to create graphic novel called Moving Pictures.

Moving Pictures is a story that takes place during World War II, when French and German museum workers were both pushing the effort to catalog and hide the major collectons of their art galleries. The main characters are a woman who is a French curator, and a man who is a German official charged with getting information about the location of specific works of art from her. The unlikely pair falls in love. I won't give away the ending, but if you like art and history, this book is highly recomended.
