A Bubble [9781770463219]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Drawn near the end of her life, surrounded by the nature and calm of Anacortes, Washington, Genevieve Castree drew one final gift for her two-year-old daughter, the stunning board book A Bubble. Leaving behind a last note for a young child is an incomprehensible task; Castree responds with grace and subtlety. Using precise, exquisite drawings of herself and her daughter, Castree depicts changes in their daily routines as a greater story unfolds. Mother and daughter float from page to page, encased in a bubble that protects them from the outside world. A contemplation of love and loss, A Bubble is a lasting declaration, a final memory, a comfort for others experiencing grief, and a beautiful archive of one of the world s most talented cartoonist s final artistic achievements. Known for her hauntingly beautiful music (under the names O PAON and Woelv), engrossingly detailed album illustrations, and delicate, subtle comics, Castree s previous graphic novel, Susceptible, shows her rare ability to handle difficult personal material with intimacy and honesty. A Bubble acts as an extension of her life story and the final chapter of a beautifully full existence. Castree passed away in 2016 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
AUTHOR: Genevieve Castree (1981-2016) was born in Quebec. Swept away by comics, she wanted to be a cartoonist since the age of nine. Castree felt the urge to publish her mini-comics early, and appeared in the Montreal underground scene while she was still a teenager. In addition to her books, Castree had a number of exhibitions in Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia, and Japan. She spent her adult life in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and daughter, where she drew, made small sculptures out of porcelain, and played music under the name O PAON.
