This week Art Spiegelman released a new multimedia publication, MetaMaus, which explores the legacy of his groundbreaking, Pulitzer prize-winning graphic novel about the Holocaust. The following is a press release from the publisher’s website:
“In the pages of MetaMaus: A Look Inside A Modern Classic, Maus (going onsale October 4), Art Spiegelman re-enters the Pulitzer prize–winning Maus, the modern classic that has altered how we see literature, comics, and the Holocaust ever since it was first published 25 years ago.
In MetaMaus, Spiegelman probes the questions that Maus most often evokes—Why the Holocaust? Why mice? Why comics?—and gives us a new and essential work about the creative process.
MetaMaus includes a bonus DVD that provides a digitized reference copy of The Complete Maus linked to a deep archive of audio interviews with his survivor father, historical documents, and a wealth of Spiegelman’s private notebooks and sketches.”
