Item Name & Description: The Salon by Nick Bertozzi (trade paperback).
Here’s the description of this out-of-print graphic novel:
In 1907 Paris, when someone starts tearing the heads off avant-garde painters, Gertrude Stein and her brother, Leo, realize that they might be next on the killer’s list. Enlisting the help of their closest friends and colleagues, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Erik Satie, Alice B. Toklas, and Guillaume Apollinaire, they set out to put a stop to the ghastly murders. Filled with danger, art history, and daring escapes, this is a wildly ingenious murder-mystery ride through the origins of modern art.
Publisher Weekly says it “has a brilliant, daffy premise executed with wit and flair.”
