Cartoonist Daria Tessler appears at Skylight Books on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 7:30 PM to discuss and sign The Cult of the Ibis.
This exquisite, mostly-silent graphic novel takes place in a fantasy cityscape loosely inspired by German Expressionist film. Cult of the Ibis tells the story of an occultist getaway driver who, after escaping with the loot from a bank robbery gone wrong, orders a build-your-own homunculus kit and goes on the lam. Steeped in architecture and atmosphere, Tessler’s vividly intricate cartooning fuels this strange and gripping yarn, which is packaged in a gorgeous hardcover design.
Daria Tessler is a cartoonist and printmaker based in Portland, OR. Her books include The Cult of the Ibis, Accursed, and Music of Changes. She also creates silkscreen prints, stationary and more, available via her website animalsleepstories.com.
