My Geometric Family Part 1 by Paula Lawrie. 40 pages, balck and white throughout, magazine size
This is a 100% unique, beautifully drawn memoir of Paula Lawrie's life growing up in the late 40s and early 50s. The storytelling is razor sharp in clarity and emotionally vivid. The drawing steps outside of traditional comic rules of exact repeating representation, but the clear storytelling remains unharmed. What emerges is a truly empathetic portrait of people and places, tragic events mixed with humorous ones in an effortless delivery. This is part 1 of a longer narrative, a perfect place to start.
