The Vallance Bible

Sylvia Kristel, from Emmanuel to Chabrol

Hi Jax & Hi Jinx
By Dame Darcy • Feral House
DAME Darcy is a unique and important voice in alt comics, entertaining readers and influencing peers with her Meat Cake series. If that’s all she did it would be impressive. But she’s also lead a rock band, worked as a sea captain, been a mermaid, and was the best contestant in the history of dating shows. We designed her autobiography.
Bawdy Tales & Trifles of Devilries
Illustrations by Eugène Lepoittevin • Feral House
EUGÈNE Lepoittevin was a 19th Century French painter of some renown. His subjects tended toward bucolic landscapes and turbulent seascapes, but in his spare time he drew dicks. Like Seth’s notebook in Superbad amount of dicks. And other stuff that went with the dicks. And some of it is collected here along with appropriate prose and limericks, bundled in a classy, square, red faux-leather hardcover volume. It’s the dick book for the person who really wants a dick book but is afraid to make one themselves.
Easy Listening Acid Trip

Dancing with the Midwives
By Ann Faison • Black Dragonfly Press
AN artist’s account, in poetry, prose and drawings, of the still birth of her daughter and the time after.
This book reminded me of another I designed decades ago because it had similar proportions. The pages in that shape felt to me like wings.
The Mudd Club
By Richard Boch • Feral House
Music & Arts Festival
BLEW the dust off of this project for the sake of nostalgia. 2004 was an ill-fated year for Lollapalooza. It was the second year back for the resurrected festival and, despite everyone’s hard work, poor ticket sales lead to the cancellation of all dates that summer. The magazine may have come out, and early ads had definitely begun to run. We were about half finished with the identity and branding when the decision was made. Double bummer because I think I could’ve gotten free tickets.
