Captain Slaughterboard exhibition

The illustrations for Captain Slaughterboard are to be exhibited at the Kunstmuseum in Luzern. It's a fascinating angle too. Once again, Mervyn Peake was working on ideas before they had become so mainstream..

"The British author and draftsman Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) created a figure with Yellow Creature already in 1939, which in every drawing between woman and man, animal and man 'changiert' and while still faithful above all remains faithful to itself. Yellow Creature is therefore the title for the group exhibition, which focuses on the relationship between gender and genres." 

A new German edition of "Captain Slaughterboard Drops Anchor" will be available from the museum.
