Isabel Greenberg

Isabel Greenberg is a London-based illustrator and writer. Her first graphic novel, The Encyclopedia of Early Earth (Little Brown, 2013), is a layered narrative of original creation myths rendered in a charming folk art style. It was nominated for two Eisner awards, won the Best Book category at the British comic awards, and was one of NPR’s 100 books of the year. Isabel’s second graphic novel, The One Hundred Nights of Hero (Little Brown, 2016), continues her own mythology, and explores a secret legacy of female storytellers in an imagined medieval world. Isabel’s most recent work can be seen in the collection A Castle in England (Nobrow, 2017).

“Greenberg’s distinctive line drawings give the narratives an otherworldly quality, which suit the fairytale/folkloric themes. The framing and emphasis on expression, meanwhile, make the characters immensely relatable.” –

Isabel will appear in MICE’s Atrium exhibition area on October 21-22, 2017 at University Hall (1815 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA). MICE is free and open to the public.
