Product Details

Praise

Eileen Gray: A House Under the Sun is a satisfying book . . . it does a great job of supporting its instinctual assumptions with fact, tracing and filling the gaps as a biographer would do, but with an eye toward enjoyment, in a true reflection of the notions Eileen Gray stood for throughout her life.”
The New York Journal of Books

“Polish comics author Dzierzawska alters her muted palette to denote settings and eras and reserves precision for the painstaking re-creations of E-1027. She overlays action frames onto the building and its blueprints, emphasizing its foundational importance to modern design and Gray’s journey as an artist. . . this appropriately inventive retelling gives due credit to Gray and her significant contributions.”
Booklist


“Many of Dzierzawska’s clever layouts echo architectural forms, and the book as a whole expresses a tension between hardness — exemplified by square comic panels and white space — and the softness of her characteristic line.”
NPR

“Illustrated with soft crayon lines and a neutral palette—except where Corbusier’s paintings break the color scheme with bright intrusion—the layouts are lovely and evocative of Gray’s creative process.”
