Reviewed Beautiful Darkness by Fabien Vehlamann and Kerascoët over at the blog, which is essentially about a group of tiny people living in the corpse of a dead girl and fighting for survival :
'But the good are always tested, and if they can't be gotten rid off, must be broken down. As Aurora's people descend increasingly into degenerate ways, led by the sadistic Zelie, she is faced with a choice: assimilate or die. She tries to extract herself from the situation by leaving, only to be followed by the rapidly dwindling troop, where she is again presented with the same choice: become one of them or suffer the consequences. It's a bleak ideology, a choice most of us are faced with in some form at some point in their lives: to what extent does one compromise one's ideals and principles, one's self before losing it entirely? Where do you draw that line that keeps you on the right side of being? How much do you slowly shuffle it before you realise you've been on the other side all along? '
O que é que pode acontecer num segundo? Abrir as páginas deste livro, que mais parecem janelas para o mundo inteiro, é descobrir a resposta. Uma tempestade, um tropeção, a queda de uma maçã, uma onda. Poesia em prosa, poesia em imagem (muito próxima da banda desenhada). Uma reedição do livro lançado em 2008, agora num formato que dá ainda mais força à ilustração.
