  • Julie Doucet is an artist who has mastered many voices and styles, from her landmark and medium-defining early work in comics with her comic-book series Dirty Plotte and the classic graphic novel My New York Diary, to her linocut and collage work in Lady Pep and Long Time Relationship.

    Most recently, Doucet has focused primarily on col- lage, crafting impeccable zines, prints, and other ephemera. In Carpet Sweeper Tales, her first new book in a decade, we see this multi-faceted artist combine her many talents into one genre-defying masterwork.

    Though Doucet stopped drawing comics over ten years ago, here she revisits the art form, pulling images from 1970s Italian fumetti, or photonovels, to create her own collage comics. Doucet collages a unique dialogue of love and travel between characters sitting in classic cars, driving through cities and pristine countryside. This book is the first to combine Doucet’s love of collage with her gift at comics storytelling.

    The result is a collection of lighthearted stories that play upon the disconnects between 1970s imagery and our modern world. Lost in translation, the dialogue is stilted, the characters alien, the mood always playful. Carpet Sweeper Tales is a milestone in a career filled with milestone achievements.
