about

A paint and paper documentary, observing great horned owls in their natural habitat.'Mesmerizing is the only word that works to describe Maggie Umber's new graphic novelSound of Snow Falling. Well, 'enchanting' works too. As in nature, the more you look, the more you see. A third viewing reveals story lines I'd missed in the first two. Umber's minimalist paintings manage to convey, in three colors, the beauty, ferocity, devotion, and sheer heart of a pair of great horned owls bringing three chicks into the world. I'm taken by the economy of line and rightness of gesture in these deceptively simple paintings.-Julie Zickefoose, author & illustrator ofBaby Birds: An Artist Looks Into the Nest,The Bluebird Effect: Uncommon Bonds with Common Birds, andLetters from Eden: A Year at Home, In the Woods'Umber beautifully uses comic form to take the reader through intimate movements in nature"-Aidan Koch, author ofAfter Nothing Comes'Maggie Umber's work is simultaneously a breathless, quiet stretch and an enormous, orchestral voice. I don't know anyone else who can create such volume through silence."-Sarah Ferrick, author ofYoursSound of Snow Falling is a graphic novel done in a poetic documentary mode. In this unique work, the reader becomes a voyeur of the natural world, following a great horned owl family through the dead of winter.
