A bilingual English/Spanish poetry magazine and autofiction chapbook lusciously written and illustrated by award-winning graphic novelist Rosemary Valero-O’Connell.
It is an amalgamation of words and images brought together to become more than the sum of their parts, exploring the body as the site and host of all pleasure and pain, and, as its name pays homage to, a collection of dispatches from life on earth.
40-full color pages; 8.5” x 11”; ISBN: 979-8-88620-000-3; SRP: $19.99; Release date: 02/15/23
“Rhapsodic and yearning, Valero-O’Connell crafts a tender resonance between delicate, sensual imagery and lyric language that explores the dark, intimate and fantastic. By artfully weaving two languages into one, Golden Record draws us through a unique and dreamy terrain of emotional and visceral introspection.”
“Poetry and comics are closely related. The beauty of good comics and good poetry is similar: creating heft, emotionality, and decadence while managing the economy of a page. All this to say, Rosemary Valero-O’Connell is a master of both. Golden Record is a sumptuous experience.”
