Page 100 Comics

It seems that a few comics artists have set about adapting page 100 of particular prose novels. I really like this idea, especially the constraint that it includes. I just reached for my copy of At Swim Two Birds, only to find that I’ve lent out every copy I have (except for my Everyman’s complete novels of Flann O’Brien, but that doesn’t seem right for this project).

  1. This is great. A quibble: Why didn’t they choose to do page 99 instead, since this is really an inversion of Ford Maddox Ford’s famous runs the which asserts that you can “open [a] book to page ninety-nine and read, and the quality of the whole will be revealed to you”?

    That said, how about Virginia Woolf’s The Waves?

  2. I just stumbled across this today and in answer to the question “Why not page 99?” I say: Previously I had done something called the 100 Page Project, and the silly confusion of doing something with such a similar name appealed to me.
