Lisa Pearson on “Sideways to Sense and Nonsense”

A heterodoxical wander through the work of artists Siglio has published who appropriate comics and re-form them through collage, who use comics as a vehicle for poetry and absurdity, and who use a comic-like sequences to narrate their autobiographies and shape their own cosmos. 

Lisa Pearson is a publisher, editor, designer as well as the founder of Siglio Press, an independent publishing house driven by its feminist ethos and committed to publishing uncommon books that live at the intersection of art and literature. She lives and works in the Hudson River Valley, New York.
