Walking by the D&Q store the other day, a poster in the window caught my eye: Cedric and Madeline Richard’s event flyer for GRACE. Like the poster, the duo’s debut graphic novella recalls an art nouveau aesthetic, filled with vivid colors, bold lines, and detailed ornamentation.
While the artwork conjures up an era that is long time past, the storyline is as relevant as ever. The narrative revolves around Justine, a middle aged woman who is obsessed with the pursuit of physical beauty, resulting in her social downfall within the fashionable upper class.
Interested? Well, you’re in luck! Cedric and Madeline Richards will be launching their collaborative work on November 11th at the Drawn & Quarterly store. Come on down for another great event!
