Femme Noir










Not since I proudly brought home Audrey Niffenegger's book The Three Incestuous Sisters have I been so enchanted with an illustrater. 27 year old French artist Anne Julie creates these haunting and enchanting images of pale neotenous women in the most inky dark environments. A little bit Winona in Beetlejuice and a little bit Edward Gorey
they are still highly original and inspiring. Helena Bonham Carter would be at home in Anne's imaginary world.
