Jeff Smith signs a book at the National Book Festival for young Emma Shacochis of Herndon Va. The 10th annual National Book Festival, organized and sponsored by the Library of Congress, was held on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2010, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
A co-founder of the 1990s self-publishing movement and an early adopter of the graphic novel format, Jeff Smith is best known as the writer and artist of “BONE,” an award- winning adventure about three cartoon cousins lost in a world of myth and ancient mysteries. In 2008, Smith was the subject of a documentary called “The Cartoonist: Jeff Smith, BONE, and the Changing Face of Comics.” Besides “BONE” and “RASL,” his other books include “Shazam: The Monster Society of Evil” and “Little Mouse Gets Ready!” (Photo by Jeff Malet).
