Laurence Hyde’s ‘Southern Cross’

Montreal art-comics publisher Drawn & Quarterly has just reprinted Laurence Hyde’s 1951 wood-engraving novel “Southern Cross.” It’s an angry visual lament of US nuclear bomb testing in the south Pacific at the end of World War II. (See sample here.) I mention it here for Greg Cook completists, because the cover text is a linocut by me.
