L’Étrange by Zélie Doffémont / About 7.5 x 10.5 inches, 36 pages, from Ion Editions (France)

Highly recommended new book of drawings by this French artist.

The peculiar drawings of the French artist Zelie Doffémont, inspired by ancient etchings, gothic literature and movies, science fiction, mythology, paintings from the Middle Ages... but also by natural shapes, insects, and plants. A fascinating toxic universe.

I think the French description makes it sound cooler: "L'étrange Humanité, son déclin, son capitalisme asphyxiant... Des destinées fantastiques et historiques tragiques (Mme de Lamballe, Vatel), derniers combats d'Hommes qui n'en sont déjà plus : sursauts de chairs parasites, carcasses oubliées, hybridations douteuses, dont se joue une nature toujours plus forte et florissante..."
