CHOICE Review

In this exceptional book Crafton interweaves diverse and colorful fabrics of biography, early film history, and cultural studies into a fascinating tapestry. Drawing on a history of popular art and media, he traces an impressively detailed portrait of French Bohemian artist and pioneer filmmaker, Emile Cohl. The book situates the playfully anarchic Cohl against the aesthetic movements, such as the Incoherents, of the fin de siecle. Cohl's innovations with graphic humor, satirical caricature, and cartoons are abundantly illustrated in a vast collection of photographs, broadsheets, posters, etchings, comic strips, and animated film frames. Those familiar only with Cohl's animated films will be richly surprised by the varied talents of this neglected artist. Crafton's meticulous scholarship is very readable and remarkably enjoyable. Using extensive documentation and a ground-breaking catalogue raisonne, this work offers a delightful and compelling analysis of the cross-fertilization of several popular arts. Enthusiastically recommended for media, art, and historical studies as a superior work that brings to life both an artist and an era. -T. Lindvall, Regent University
