It hardly comes as a surprise that we’re posting about this book; after all it’s Marion Fayolle, one of our favourite French illustrators, and her new title has been lovingly published by NoBrow. What’s not to like? Anyway, this truly is something special – most spreads are made up of one-page, two-part panel-less stories of couples dancing, swinging, hunting, being in love and sculpting. A lot of the time the stories end in a sweet sadness that you can totally relate to, but can’t quite tell why.
Funny, sexy, touching and in parts rather philosophical, this sweet tome is rounded off nicely with a foreword by Comica director Paul Gravett, and is an absolute joy to get lost in.
