Assistant Professor in The Department of Communication Arts, Stephen Alcorn, recently illustrated a Japanese edition of a novel by Paul LaFarge, titled, “The Artist of The Missing.” The volume features 12 large-format relief-block prints and boasts a full-color wraparound cover.

From the Tokyo-based publisher, CHUOKORON-SHINSHA, INC:
“A haunting novel that recalls the early work of Paul Auster and Steven Millhauser, The Artist of the Missing is a stunning debut, both a richly imagined evocation of another world and a piercing examination of the mystery of love, and beautifully illustrated by the acclaimed artist Stephen Alcorn. A visionary novel about love, loss, imagination, and despair.”
