Hall of Best Knowledge Hardcover

Ray Fenwick
Ray Fenwick
Ray Fenwick has pioneered his own medium of storytelling, one best described as "typographical comics." Hall of Best Knowledge is presented as a handsome, personal journal written by an unnamed voice, referred to only as "the Author". Little is known about him. He clearly fashions himself a genius, writing with a faux-aristocratic air and it is presumably his belief in his own genius that leads him to want to share his knowledge with the world.

It becomes obvious to the reader early on that all is not as it seems; only at the end does the picture become completely clear. Hall of Best Knowledge is part graphic novel, part art object, part satire, part puzzle. The slow unfolding of the author and his story builds humour with each page, creating a peculiar examination of the idea of genius and the problems that arise in search and transmission of knowledge.
