A Beautiful Tribute: Google Illustrates Some of Steinbeck's Monumental Works





Perhaps no novel opens more powerfully than John Steinbeck's Cannery Row: "Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream."

Steinbeck delicately drags the reader into the visceral, tactile, and palpable worlds of his Depression era characters. We smell and taste and spit out life with them.

Today Google doodled some of Steinbeck's monumental works in celebration of his birthday. The illustrated slides, featuring quotes from the depicted novels, are a bold and beautiful tribute to a cherished American author. Hats off Google- gorgeously executed.

Plunge Into the Shadows

Jenny Wildfang Drawings

I won't pretend for a minute to understand the German text in Jenny Wildfang's dreary sketchbook, but there is something unsettling in her work that breeds discomfort. I'm not quite sure what it is — only that it is there and it is dark. The use of heavy shadows heightens the narrative and the sickly sense that something is not okay. Who are these people drenched in shadows? Do we want to know the secrets they keep?

All I can say is that Jenny is one of my favorite new finds over at our Google+ community, so if you haven't joined, you should!
