In 1906, infamous anarchist, art maven, and literary instigator Félix Fénéon authored 1,220 brief news pieces for the Paris newspaper Le Matin. Each of these three-line snippets, called a fait divers, encapsulated a bit of news from the day or week before: death notices, accounts of naval exercises gone awry, tales of petty theft and labor disputes. When The New York Review of Books published Luc Sante’s English translation of all 1,220, illustrator Joanna Neborsky combed through them all and chose the zaniest and most off-the-wall. For each of these, she crafted a quirky, collage-based illustration. This edition of Illustrated Three-Line Novels collects her renderings and delivers them to your iPad in full-color, fixed-width EPUB format.
