Mendleman's life goes through an upheaval when he discovers that he can no longer earn a living for his growing family doing the work that defines him-making well-crafted rugs by hand. A proud artisan, he takes his donkey-drawn cart to the market only to be turned away when the distinctive shop he once sold to now only stocks cheaply manufactured merchandise. As the realities of the marketplace sink in, Mendleman unravels. James Sturm draws a quiet, reflective, and beautiful portrait of eastern Europe in the early 1900s-bringing to life the hustle and bustle of an Old-World marketplace on the brink of the industrial revolution. Market Day is an ageless tale of how economic and social forces can affect a single life.
JAMES STURM is an award-winning cartoonist of the numerous books, including THE GOLEM'S MIGHTY SWING, and ADVENTURES IN CARTOONING. He is a true visionary, having co-founded the alternative weekly the SEATTLE STRANGER and the Center for Cartoon Studies, North America's premier cartooning school.
