De Crecy, N. (2005). Glacial period. New York: Nantier, Beall, Minoustchine.
Fiction. This is the first in a series of graphic novels created in conjunction with the Louvre. The book begins years into the future after a long glacial period, when a team of archaeologists discover the ruins of the Louvre museum in France and speculate on the type of civilization that created the art found inside. As the explorers stroll through the ruins of the building, the art works begin to speak to each other and the explorers, relating stories of the past civilization. There is an appendix that provides a guide to the works depicted in the tale, along with their locations in the Louvre.
Lessons: This would be a wonderful addition to a library for the French and art programs.
