• Welcome to Marwencol is a hybrid art and storybook about Mark Hogancamp and his imaginary World War II—era town of Marwencol.
• Learn about Hogancamp's life before and after the attack which left him with no memory of the thirty-eight prior years of his life, including his ex-wife, family, artistic talents, or military service
• This astonishing story of the redemptive power of art shows Hogancamp's process with behind-the-scenes photos, capsule biographies of each Marwencol character, descriptions of each miniature building, and Mark's insight into constructing and photographing his world
• Includes 100 pages of Hogancamp's photographs and stories laid out as a graphic novel

"Fight scenes, dramatic rescues and love triangles are painstakingly arranged to play out before Mr. Hogancamp's camera. The resulting images are startlingly lifelike, poignant and, for him, therapeutic."—The New York Times
