Love Nest is an art book composed of totally new material by Charles Burns. Created especially for Cornélius, it is not available in any other edition. Out of print for a couple years, this new printing has a black cloth cover with purple silver foil stamping.

From the publisher:

Inspired by the imagery of romance comics of the fifties, Charles Burns decides to appropriate this pop aesthetic to create more than a hundred illustrations. The association of these romantic representations with the mysterious and organic universe of the author of Toxic is striking.

Here, the gaudy colors disappear to give place to square and sharp black and white images. The theatrical dimension of these graphic re-readings and the play of chiaroscuro mastered to perfection produce a feeling of anguish and strangeness, around which a dislocated narrative is built up little by little. Born out of fields, ellipses and visual references intertwined, an unstoppable story is drawn page after page, offering the reader a unique trip to the country of intranquillity.

Evolving between dreams and reality, Love nest attests once more to the talent of Charles Burns to produce unique images with bewitching beauty. This totally new book, created especially for Cornélius and offered exclusively worldwide, will delight his many fans!

Le mot de Editeur:

Inspiré par l'imagerie des comics à l'eau de rose des années cinquante, Charles Burns décide de s'approprier cette esthétique pop pour créer plus d'une centaine d'illustrations. L'association de ces représentations romantiques avec l'univers mystérieux et organique de l'auteur de Toxic est saisissante.

Ici, les couleurs criardes disparaissent pour laisser place à des images carrées au noir et blanc tranchant. La dimension théâtrale de ces relectures graphiques et les jeux de clair-obscur maîtrisés à la perfection produisent un sentiment d'angoisse et d'étrangeté, autour duquel une narration disloquée se construit peu à peu. Née des hors-champs, des ellipses et des références visuelles entremêlées, une histoire informulable se dessine page après page, offrant au lecteur un voyage unique au pays de l'intranquillité.

Évoluant entre rêve et réalité, Love nest atteste une fois de plus du talent de Charles Burns à produire des images uniques à la beauté envoûtante. Ce livre totalement inédit, créé spécialement pour Cornélius et proposé en exclusivité mondiale, saura ravir ses nombreux fans!

Burns, Charles
