Gilded Lilies by Jillian Tamaki

Gilded Lilies by Jillian Tamaki

Jillian Tamaki’s first book, Gilded Lilies, collects many of her previously published illustrations (New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, CBC, The New Yorker) as well as new drawings and comics. Included is a reprint of her mini-comic, City of Champions, as well as a new comic, The Tapemines, an 80-page wordless scroll about feral children in forests of cassette tape. With inspirations including German expressionists Georg Grosz and Otto Dix, as well as Japanese and Inuit printmakers, Tamaki’s unique style often celebrates the inherent beauty in the grotesque, while remaining character-driven and focused on observational narrative.
