Nobrow produced this lovely book of Fayolle's wordless/silent stories focused on relationships between men and women. Often funny, often surreal, these are panel-less stories set on oversized white backgrounds, elegantly drawn and attractively colored. These are wonderful, something that feels new and fresh and insightful.

Here you can look at some images from the book:

Gorgeous, thoughtful, short, wordless comics. An artist I'll be keeping my eye on.

Wordless storytelling of crazy ideas, like the roll away cat, and the halved children.

in a bare background fayolle conjures up imaginative vignettes. everyone looks almost the same, but some characters reappear - one of my favorites is a sad gag about a woman who has roll-up companions. like dzama and darger, these characters have a quality of being a step above cutouts - like they were once old time picture book characters who developed personalities. their nudity is simultaneously charming/blase and tinged with sexual tension. I wouldn't have minded some words, just to hear wha ...more

This was like walking through a little gallery, especially as the comics were without speech. A very pleasant experiment. Solitude, the suitors/mirror/fragments series, and sculpture->grave series were super interesting. It was amazing how she could tell stories and make points in the confines of her conception, or outside the confines of 'normal' comics. Lively book!

This book was very unique and I really adored it. Also, I learnt that 'poser un lapin' ('to place a rabbit') equates to 'to stand someone up'. C'est fantastique!

Interesting so far! Every story is a treat and one that leaves you thinking long after you turned the page.
