Our lovely Public Services librarian, Gabrielle Reed, put a a couple of Audrey Niffenegger’s books on the bookshelf near our Circulation desk, along with many other books by female writers, poets, artists, etc.
Audrey Niffenegger is most known for her book The Time-traveler’s Wife, which was made into a movie in 2009, but has also made several beautiful visual books. She currently teaches in the Interdisciplinary Book Arts MFA Program at the Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts.
Her work is reminiscent of Edward Gorey a little, especially her “novel in pictures,” The Three Incestuous Sisters:
Niffenegger also has a number of self-portraits and other paintings up on her website as well as a link to the first chapters of her graphic novel The Night Bookmobile which was published in Sept. 2010 and is available on Amazon.com.
Lastly, check out the artist book Poisonous Plants at Table, which contains a short story written and illustrated by Niffenegger.
