Review quote

""In Pieces" is a glowing example of what comics are and can be; evidence that the comics medium, in this moment, is perhaps more vibrant and exciting than any other." - Heavy Feather Review ""In Pieces" is an uncommon piece of visual poetry by French illustrator and comic artist Marion Fayolle that calls to mind at once the surrealist whimsy of "Codex Seraphinianus", the visual neatness of Gregory Balckstock's illustrated lists, and the vignettes of Blexbolex--and yet Fayolle's is a sensibility unlike anything that ever existed." -Brain Pickings "Spectacular...this truly is something special... Funny, sexy, touching and in parts rather philosophical, this sweet tome is ... an absolute joy to get lost in." - It's Nice That "Fayolle strips the comics medium back to its essentials" - Art Review 2013
