Kate Lacour's Vivisectionary is a boundlessly inventive feast of single page sequential images that illustrate many marvelous, hideous, enigmatic physiological mysteries--a visual guide to the intimate workings of impossible biologies, told through a series of scientific diagrams and tableaux. The coldness of scientific charts alternates with raw and intimate imagery, exploring a world where hummingbirds can be parasites, where feces can be transformed into brain tissue or gemstones. Part comic art, part textbook, Vivisectionary blends sex, religion, science, and body horror, with an eye to the sublime and the grotesque.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Kate LacourPublisher: Fantagraphics BooksPublished: 08/20/2019ISBN: 9781683962120Pages: 144Weight: 1.05lbsSize: 10.40h x 6.40w x 0.50dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 06/03/2019
