George wanted to create a new edition that recalled many of the things that were visible in the time of Dante: every move the artist made was a careful choice.
“That connection of handwriting, telling a story in sequence, where you use words and pictures to tell a story, is a very strong connection.”
As George works tirelessly to complete his new Divine Comedy, he always looks to 700 years of Art inspired by Dante.
“My daily routine was modeled on the Medieval monks’: I have kept to a rigid schedule, waking before dawn to scribe my manuscript pages. Each page took me about 1.5 hours to complete. I would write, every single day for months, as many lines as I could complete before going to work.”
