An immersive curation of Genevieve Castree's stunning life's work and expansive artistic legacy

It's not easy to label an artist like Genevieve Castree - cartoonist, illustrator, musician, sculptor, stamp collector, activist, correspondent - a person with busy hands and a mind too creative and wild to stop doing.

Those familiar with Castree's seminal memoir about her childhood, Susceptible (included fully within), will know that she, to a large degree, raised herself. It was in those unattended, semi-feral childhood years that Genevieve used art to pull herself out of what could have otherwise been a bleak existence. Instead, she found beauty and depth around her and blended it gorgeously with the harsh, devastating realities of this world, creating a body of work that is so stunning, heartbreaking, and magical that it leaves you aching.

From rarely- or never-seen illustrations and comics, to album covers and photographs, to studio scraps, Genevieve Castree: Complete Works 1981-2016 is a breathtaking collection of Castree's work and soul. A remarkable woman who made remarkable art, her love and spirit weep and shine from the pages.

With an introduction from Castree's widower Phil Elverum, who devoted himself to designing and curating the book, we gain further insight into the details of her life. Translations are lovingly and expertly provided by Elverum and Aleshia Jensen.
