French artist Mirka Lugosi creates a surreal fetishist dreamworld in this collection of her paintings and drawings. The pocket-sized artist's book presents 50 icon-like, fantasy pictures of unsettling mysterious locations, erotic paraphernalia and women exposing themselves. The images are accompanied by poetic texts by Marie-Laure Dagoit. Sexually explicit.
My Brother's Book
Published in 2013, a year after Sendak's death, My Brother's Book is his tribute to his elder brother who died in 1995. Addressed to adults rather than children, the short and, at times, enigmatic text echoes themes from Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale, while the watercolours, showing the influence of Blake and Chagall, evoke an uncertain world of danger and loss. With a foreword by Shakespearean scholar Stephen Greenblatt.
