"Syncopated will give you a daringly different view of the past--from the history of vintage postcards to the glory days of old Coney Island. It will immerse you in fascinating subcultures, from the secret world of graffiti artists to the chess champs of Greenwich Village. And it will open your eyes to pieces of forgotten history--for example, the Tulsa race riots of 1921--and to new perspectives on critical current events, such as the interrogation of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay. These 'picto-essays' encompass memoir, history, journalism, and biography in varied visual styles--each handpicked by Brendan Burford, one of America's top editors."--Amazon.com.

Nice assemblage of non-fiction stories: profiles of people, places, and histories. A good supplement to all the excellent graphic novels out there.
