Timelapse: Martin Rowson draws The Communist Manifesto

1 May 2018

What goes into creating an 80-page comic book adaptation of The Communist Manifesto? The answer, it seems, is hours and hours of hard labour. 

In this extraordinary timelapse video - ten hours of work compressed into five minutes - Martin Rowson creates one elaborate double page spread. His tools: various ink, paint and brushes, and a mouth atomiser.

The Communist Manifesto is out now and available in all good book shops.
