Tonight at 7pm: Julie Doucet launches Carpet Sweeper Tales!

OOOOH EXCITING NEWS!

 Iconic Montreal author and artist Julie Doucet returns to Librairie D+Q for the release of CARPET SWEEPER TALES, her new collection of dreamy, collaged photo comics.

Though Doucet stopped drawing comics more than ten years ago, here she revisits the art form, pulling images from 1970s Italian fumetti or photonovels to create her own collage comics. Using vintage women's and home decorating magazines, Doucet collages a unique dialogue of love and travel between characters sitting in classic cars, driving through cities and pristine countryside.The result is a collection of lighthearted stories that play upon the disconnects between 1970s imagery and our modern world.


Julie Doucet was born near Montreal in 1965 and is best known for her frank, funny, and sometimes shocking comic book series Dirty Plotte, which changed the landscape of alternative cartooning. In the 1990s, Doucet moved between New York, Seattle, Berlin, and Montreal, publishing the graphic novels My New York Diary, Lift Your Leg, My Fish Is Dead!, My Most Secret Desire, and The Madame Paul Affair. In 2000, she quit comics to concentrate on other art forms; from these experiments emerged the collection of engravings and prints Long Time Relationship, and her one-year visual journal, 365 Days. Her post-comics artwork includes silkscreened artist's books, text-based collages, and animation films.

Please join us for this! There will be a presentation and drinks!!
