A gorgeous gem, back in print!
In this collection of illustrations, Vancouver artist Julie Morstad spins fairy tales infused with dreamlike innocence and a touch of the macabre. Morstad's work has been shown in galleries, featured on the cover of Neko Case's 2006 album Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, and developed into a line of patterned wallpapers with a distinctive nostalgic quality. Milk Teeth's universe, populated by animals, flowers, peculiar objects and disembodied heads, has a sensibility reminiscent of Marcel Dzama's surreal drawings, Jeffrey Eugenides' haunting novel The Virgin Suicides, and Peter Weir's classic film Picnic at Hanging Rock.
