By Ginette Lapalme
200 pp., 6"x7.5", perfect bound
Confetti, like its namesake, is a fun and explosive mix of color from the fertile mind of multidisciplinary artist Ginette Lapalme. In comics, paintings, prints, sculpture, and jewelry, Lapalme uses cartoons and junk culture as raw material to make "cute" subversive and "pretty" punk. If bright colors, cats, glitter, and the reconstruction of expectations are of any interest to you, Confetti is a must-have.
"It is a goal of mine to live alone in a big house surrounded by the work of Ginette Lapalme, kind of like a cat lady, but with drawings of cats instead of real cats...Utterly delightful but never too cute, the world Lapalme has created leaves me more attuned to the perverse beauty of one around us." -Tavi Gevinson, founder and editor of Rookie
