Through a series of vignettes, the Rapunzel fairytale is retold as a dreamlike metaphor for the patriarchy. You never actually see a princess or a tower -- what you see are visual flashes coupled with a poem that weaves throughout the pages, linking otherwise disparate moments and feelings as experienced by a vast array of the patriarchy’s targets. The patriarchy is messy, impossible to contain or definitively boil down as every person experiences it uniquely -- instead, the book depicts just a few patches of a greater quilt. Even the panels of the comic are laid out in a symmetrical grid like squares on a blanket (or bars in a cage).
In the poem, Rapunzel describes her life spent locked inside her prison, the sacrifices she makes to survive, and the extreme actions she must take to escape. Visually, things are a bit less satisfying than a fairytale: there is abuse, there is triumph, there is backlash and setbacks and victories and incompletion. We have not reached our fairytale ending, and so we continue to resist, to learn, and to occasionally let our hair down.

Comic is four intense pages, 8.5"x11." Trigger warning: Contains allusions to sexual violence. ALL proceeds go to the New Orleans Abortion Fund and Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast.

I love this artist’s work and it’s such a treat to be able to send her beautiful work as seasonal cards to friends and family. The cards are very well made and a true bargain as well. I couldn’t believe how quickly I received my order and I love the way it was packaged. This seller is extremely attentive to detail and cares about the satisfaction, happiness, and the feedback of her customers than most anyone else I’ve interacted with online. She responded to feedback I gave almost a year ago by sending me a new card (after also getting back to my immediately when I first contacted her) with a great, new copy of the card. I was so impressed and happy. Many thanks!

It was much smaller that I expected, but the story and illustrations are perfect. I love the idea of her being feral. More fish than human, as Mermaids probably are.

Thanks so much! This is a great little book, with really cool art. (Also came with a thank-you card that was a work of art in itself). FYI, I knew about this book because the Glitter Box N.O. mentioned it on their FB page. Sometimes that kind of info is useful. :)

The beautiful work of art shipped quickly, arrived in great condition and was the perfect size: roughly 9.5"x13". I framed it and hung it in my living room. It is an excellent addition to the peaceful home that I'm trying to create. I love the flowing contrast of her dress with the river and the sky. Thank you for sharing your talents and skills.
