I HATE YOU YOU JUST DON'T KNOW IT YET by Nadine Redlich
100 x 145mm, 64 pages, Single colour printed, Perfect bound, Softcover, 2020
"A mixture of comics, doodles, scrawled aphorisms, and scorched earth destruction of romantic cliches. Every word drips with sarcasm, yet the book also has an emotional heft to it that gives power to its humor. The book is balanced between running gags that skewer platitudes, funny drawings of people with bulbous noses, and genuine expressions of rage, loneliness and despair hidden in the jokey quality of the material. Redlich runs sentimental lines like “You have the most beautiful body shape I've ever seen” and “Our love is like a beautiful vase” repeatedly throughout the book and juxtaposes them against increasingly absurd images."
