Paul Rogers illustrates The Frozen Rabbi for Tablet
Since the beginning of this month, Paul Rogers has been doing illustrations to accompany the serialization of “The Frozen Rabbi” novel by Steve Stern. The illustrations are for Tablet, an online magazine. The story is about a nineteenth-century rabbi from a small Polish town who is encased in a block of ice and turns up in the basement freezer of a twenty-first-century Memphis home. Tablet is running daily installments of the novel over a period of nine weeks. Paul says, “At first, art director Len Small wanted one drawing per week, but the story is so rich that I agreed to do a drawing a day. I really like the idea of reviving the serialized novel online.” All the illustrations to date are on Tablet's website below.
