Illustrating Spain in the US
1/ The Spanish Philological and Literary Legacy
The Spanish Philological and Literary Legacy explores the cultural relationship between the United States and Spain built on America’s interest in Hispanism which bore its greatest fruit in the first third of the 20th century and encouraged more and more Spanish intellectuals and artists to cross the Atlantic. This edition includes a comic by artist Anapurna and an article by expert on Hispanism Lucia Cotarelo.
Anapurna is the alter-ego of Ana Sainz Quesada, a Madrid-based illustrator and artist. Working on different artistic disciplines and equally attracted by drawing, street art, painting, embroidery, and engraving, she loves making and reading every kind of comics.
During February–August we will be releasing one comic per month. Stay tuned so you don’t miss any of them!
