Reviews

"Many of Dzierzawska's clever layouts echo architectural forms, and the book as a whole expresses a tension between hardness -- exemplified by square comic panels and white space -- and the softness of her characteristic line."
--NPR

"Polish comics author Dzierzawska alters her muted palette to denote settings and eras and reserves precision for the painstaking re-creations of E-1027. She overlays action frames onto the building and its blueprints, emphasizing its foundational importance to modern design and Gray's journey as an artist. . . this appropriately inventive retelling gives due credit to Gray and her significant contributions."
--Booklist

"Illustrated with soft crayon lines and a neutral palette--except where Corbusier's paintings break the color scheme with bright intrusion--the layouts are lovely and evocative of Gray's creative process."
--Publishers Weekly

"Eileen Gray: A House Under the Sun is a satisfying book . . . it does a great job of supporting its instinctual assumptions with fact, tracing and filling the gaps as a biographer would do, but with an eye toward enjoyment, in a true reflection of the notions Eileen Gray stood for throughout her life."
--The New York Journal of Books
