Astral Talk

Astral Talk is a beautiful new anthology edited by Aidan Koch and featuring work by Clara Bessijelle, Jason Overby, Blaise Larmee, Dunja Jankovic, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Ward Zwart, Austin English and Aidan herself.

The roster of artists reads like a DOMINO dream team and I think Aidan did an incredible job in selecting the work for this book. A good anthology reads as a statement, and Astral Talk makes a strong argument for a very particular aesthetic. The featured artists show great passion for telling stores with images coupled with a wild disregard for tradtional layout, tools, story structure, etc. And yet story ITSELF is not rejected. Writing, evocative langueage and situations are as equally labored over as the intense, expressive imagery. I think the generation featured in this book has something to say with experimental writing as much as with experimental drawing. More on that idea later (I have a lot to say about it)…but for now, read about it in ASTRAL TALK.

Contact Publication Studio on how to get a copy (I think they will adding it to their online store soon).
