Rime of a modern mariner

Illustrator and political cartoonist Nick Hayes has transformed Coleridge’s haunting tale into a beautiful graphic novel, The Rime of a modern mariner, featuring oceans of plastic waste and strangled seabirds.

This is definitely on my to-read list. I flipped through a copy the other day at the wonderful Lutyens & Rubenstein bookshop in Notting Hill, after reading a Guardian review.

The illustrations are beautiful (I especially like his curly beard). Can’t wait to get my copy (but I’m saving it for a treat to myself sometime).

    A big poem to the oceans. Nice draws, nice history and a brilliant comic.
