Dahut merc'h Gradlon


This one is a genuine discovery. It's a first glimpse of Dahut merc'h Gradlon, who plays a significant role in The Iron Dragon's Daughter. The picture captures a lot of her personality, I think. She's everything a tragic heroine should be--beautiful, willful, and absolutely unreasonable. Also, ultimately and unexpectedly, noble.

Should I have said spoiler alert?

The page opposite her was left blank because, well, who could stand up to Dahut?

Above: The Iron Dragon's Daughter is on the stands. But I'm going to keep posting the Image Book until it reaches the end.

The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, mostly. An occasional art magazine.
