Atlanta Artist Makeda Lewis Creates ‘Avie’s Dreams: An Afro-Feminist Coloring Book.’

Makeda Lewis is a 25-year-old artist from Atlanta, Georgia. Much of her work explores themes of self-love, body image, gender, and black womanhood. Lewis recently released her first published work, Avie’s Dreams: An Afro-Feminist Coloring Book. The project, which is both a self-love letter and an adult coloring book, features beautiful illustrations that mix nature and fantasy.

Spotlight: Polish Fairy Tales

While verifying the cataloging for a few books being added to our holdings this afternoon, I came across a fascinating collection of Polish Fairy Tales written in Slovak by Želmíra Gašparíková. Hop, Čižmičky, sto milʹ! was printed by the Slovakian press Mladé Letá in 1962. I was enchanted and vaguely unsettled by Ján Lebiš’s illustrations (I imagine the stories are equally troubling, but I can’t read them).

Above are a few of my favorites. I love the three headed dragon, the furious, beer drinking canine, and the cold, dead eyes of all the humans and mermaids depicted. The sun looks like something I would have drawn as a child, only obviously much more visually appealing.
