Illustration: Amélie Carpentier’s illustrated book about love troubles

French illustrator Amélie Carpentier is to thank for this slice of pleasantry; she has a diverse range of styles in her portfolio, and nestled happily among various different projects is Amour Trouble, an illustrated comic book-esque publication about one man’s trials of the heart. The frames used to delineate each scene in the story act as a kind of signature to Amélie’s style, switching from circles and squares to hexagons progressively as the story advances, lending it a geometric theme and a cool alternative perspective. She’s got the knack of outlining stories with little more than recurring forms and simply-constructed characters, both traits which are sure to see her create many more cool books yet.
