Geis_cover_rgbIn case you were wondering how to say it, Geis is pronounced ‘Gesh’ (at least according to the notes in the front of the book) and is a Gallic word that that means taboo or curse. But don’t be put off by the hard to pronounce name, Alexis Deacon’s exquisite new book is a sublime mix of classic fairytale with bande designées styling and top quality production values (courtesy of Nobrow Press) that create a wonderfully entrancing first entry in an exciting new trilogy of books.
