At its very best moments, Journal becomes indistinguishable from poetry—and there are, as the reader will discover, many such moments.

Synopsis

Journal displays Julie Delporte's organic and immediate drawings that utilize an uncanny sense of color and composition to illustrate their intimate, diarist narratives. Cataloging an emotional breakup, an artist's residency, and the anxieties and joys of everyday life, Delporte's elegant illuminated diary is a private life made public and poetic.
