Tongues Number Two art show & release party with Anders Nilsen on November 1
This November Floating World Comics will host an art exhibit and book signing with Anders Nilsen to celebrate the release of his new book, Tongues Number Two.
The second issue of Tongues draws readers deeper into the enigmatic, interconnected stories of a god imprisoned on a mountainside, an eagle – his apparent jailor, and a young American wandering into trouble in the wilderness with a teddy bear. We also move back in time to watch our young East African protagonist as she experiences violent and peculiar visions of her frightening near future, and meet a handsome, malevolent young swan with dark appetites. Tongues is part adventure and part meditation on humanity’s fraught present moment and its peculiar evolutionary heritage.
The book itself is as much an unfolding object as it is a story, featuring full color, a large format, and intricate design. The artist is serializing the book in conjunction with publisher No Miracles in 10 issues over the next few years.
