Product Details

Praise

“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

“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

“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.”
Publishers Weekly

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
