Shortly after the Berlin Wall went up and the painter defected, or as he would say “relocated,” from Dresden to the West, Richter drew a series of images featuring a single protagonist going through an abstract landscape. Recently discovered in a 1962 notebook, these have been published by his archives in a facsimile edition titled Comic Strip—a sparely beautiful book-object that, like Krazy Kat or Little Orphan Annie, has a central character or rather an expressive motif. by debbie

There are two published editions of this odd, bifurcated novel. Depending on which copy you end up with, you'll either start with the story of the artist Francesco del Cossa, a Renaissance Italian fresco painter, or that of George, short for Georgia, a ‘60s teenager who recently lost her mother. Either way you will have the delightful experience of reading something truly innovative. by bonita

Lost-and-found contour is a description of a form in which an object is revealed by distinct contours in some areas whereas other edges simply vanish or dissolve into the ground. Anime eyes often use lost-and-found contour rather than outline the entirety of the eye's form. by tlkenyon
