Originally released in 1953, R.O. Blechman’s picture book, The Juggler of Our Lady will be reprinted by Dover Graphic Novels this summer with an introduction by Maurice Sendak. The Juggler of Our Lady is one of the great examples of the graphic novel form. In the book, Blechman gives us a satirical, visual retelling of a classic medieval Christmas tale of the same name. The story is simple: An innocent juggler named Cantalbert sets out to save the world with his talent but is scorned and ignored by everyone he meets until an encounter with a statue of the Virgin Mary changes his life.
The first edition was published by Henry Holt in 1953.

Maurice’s show, “Cockadoodle: The Erogenous Art of Maurice Vellekoop” was given a double page review in the Manchester Evening News.
September 10, 2014
The show in Manchester, England is a flamboyant new exhibition of Maurice’s contribution to illustration, underground comics and contemporary erotica. This is Maurice Vellekoop’s first European solo exhibition with a wide selection of his erotic work on show alongside examples of his mainstream editorial work. The exhibition comes at a moment of renewed significance for Maurice as he embarks upon a graphic memoir, I’m So Glad We Had This Time Together! commissioned by the Canadian Council for the Arts and edited by author and award-winning art director Chip Kidd, to be published by Pantheon Books.
The exhibition is supported by a programme of events and activities that address notions of private shame, empowerment, sex-positivism and the often overlooked role of personal fantasy in critical cultural appreciation.
Cockadoodle: The Erogenous Art of Maurice VellekoopThe show is at Twenty Twenty Two in Manchester, England from 15 August to 13 September 2014. The show will move to a Liverpool venue and dates will be announced soon.
Curated by Bren O’Callaghan, is supported by Arts Council England, Manchester Pride and Homotopia Liverpool.
