About this collection

The Art & Graphics collection combines contemporary and historical environmental art, as well as comics and illustrations. The Anthropocene Milestones comic series illustrates 30 eight-panel comic strips depicting items as diverse as the spinning jenny, the scanning tunneling microscope, and the telephone, and events as far apart in time as the 40,800-year-old Altamira cave drawings and the Apollo mission of 1968. All these represent important milestones that have paved the way to a new geological “age of humans.” This collection also includes environmentally relevant early modern broadsheets from the 16th century digitized by the Bavarian State Library. Art & Graphics will soon feature profiles of environmental artist and their art, graphic novels on the human-environment relationship, and environmental photography.
