I wanted to illustrate the classic, beautiful, and haunting tale of Don Quixote. The illustrations went into a book with selected excerpts of type from Penguin Classics' Don Quixote. The type was... More > arranged experimentally, interacting with the illustrations and helping to set the theme and mood of the story. It is my belief that Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote, put a bit of himself into the character of Don Quixote, having been captured during war and held as a prisoner for five years. Throughout the novel, there are bits and pieces that prove this idea and I wanted to uphold the satirical comedy of a madman while also remembering the life of Miguel de Cervantes Saavadra.< Less

Don Quixote is the story of a man who goes nuts after reading one too many books about knighthood and chivalry, and sets out on his own quest. Originally published in two parts (1605 and 1615),... More > Cervantes' massively influential work is a nuanced insight into identity, sanity, and escapism. With his noble sidekick Sancho Panza and (to fit the narrative) a lady love, Don Quixote dons a beat up suit of armor and sets out as knight-errant, battling what he perceives as forces of evil, from rogue knights to fierce giants (which are actually windmills). The first part of the book is farcical (think Monty Python), while the second half is more philosophical. Two notes: for those who don't know, the novel Don Quixote is responsible for the adjective quixotic, meaning: foolishly impractical, marked by rash and lofty romantic ideas or extravagantly chivalrous action. And, as one heck of an endorsement, it was recently voted Greatest Book of All Time by the Nobel Institute.< Less

In one such list, Don Quixote was cited as the "best literary work ever written". Alonso Quijano, the protagonist of the novel, is a retired country gentleman. While mostly a rational man of sound reason, reading Romances, or books of chivalry, in excess has had a profound effect on Quijano, leading to the distortion of his perception and the wavering of his mental faculties. Otherwise, his wits, in regards to everything other than chivalry, are intact. He decides to go out as a knight-errant in search of adventure.

As a founding work... More > of modern Western literature, it regularly appears at or near the top of lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. The protagonist, Alonso Quixano, is a minor landowner who has read so many stories of chivalry that he descends into fantasy and becomes convinced he is a knight errant. Together with his companion Sancho Panza, the self-styled Don Quixote de la Mancha sets out in search of adventures. His “lady” is Dulcinea del Toboso, an imaginary object of his courtly love crafted from a neighbouring farm girl by the illusion-struck “knight” (her real name is Aldonza Lorenzo, and she is totally unaware of his feelings for her. In addition, she never actually appears in the novel).< Less

More > farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who frequently deals with Don Quixote's rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood with a unique, earthy wit. He is met by the world as it is, initiating themes like intertextuality, realism, metatheatre and literary representation. The novel's structure is in episodic form. It is written in the picaresco style of the late 16th century, and features reference other picaresque novels including Lazarillo de Tormes and The Golden Ass. The full title is indicative of the tale's object, as ingenioso (Spanish) means "quick with inventiveness" marking the transition of modern literature from Dramatic to thematic unity. The novel takes place over a long period of time, including many adventures all united by common themes of the nature of reality, reading, and dialogue in general.< Less
