Non-graphic Graphic Design


If you tell me, it’s an essay. If you show me, it’s a story. That’s what Barbara Green said. Whether Sasha Darling, author of Cowboy Junkies, heard of this is not certain. But her piece surely deserves a mention from us.

Already engaging on its own, Sasha’s story was made even better with the help of Chloe Fleury, a graphic designer. But accompanying the text of the article published on the Bold Italic are illustrations that break away from the graphic (read: computer-aided) norm. And delightfully so. Look at how analogue they are:

In my opinion, these quaint paper drawings unfolded the story as much as the words did.

Read Cowboy Junkies and tell me I’m wrong.
