Sowing the Wind — Nadia Raviscioni’s Vent frais, vent du matin

Posted by on August 28th, 2010 at 4:14 PM
Swiss cartoonist Nadia Raviscioni's Vent Frais, vent du matin (‘Fresh Breeze, Morning Breeze’), may be the first book fully to meet the challenge set by the previous generation of comics autobiographers in terms of ambition, complexity and artistic conviction. Released earlier this year, the book has been more than a decade in the making. It reclaims for Raviscioni—whose precocious juvenilia was released across a handful of publications in the late 90s by Genevan publisher Atrabile—a place at the center of the new generation of alternative cartoonists.
