About the Book
A meditation on the nature of beauty and pleasure through a series of text heavy narrative paintings by Samantha Simpson. Obsessive detail, talking animals, plots, subplots, flowers with faces and lush colors. The paintings reference 14th century prints as well as graphic novels as they talk about art making, forbidden aesthetics, femininity, mortality and meaning through the voices of turtles, insects, frogs, flowers, snakes and swans. Note: This is a beautiful, although outrageously pricey paperback book: a small percentage of the cost of printing each copy goes to support the artist.
