Martine Johanna illustrates ‘Ulysses ’
by James Joyce

Dutch artist Martine Johanna has created a series of beautifully detailed drawings in response to Molly
Bloom’s stream-of-consciousness soliloquy at the close of James Joyce’s classic novel of 1920.

The Purple Book examines the close relationship between illustration and the written word as a means for representing our relationship with desire and the dream-state. Inspired by the infamous literary quarterly of the Fin de siècle, The Yellow Book, it revisits the intimate language and flights of imagination of writers known for sensual and hallucinatory storytelling, including text by Edgar Allan Poe, James Joyce, Christina Rossetti, and Georges Bataille. This writing is paired with the work of contemporary illustrators whose output is influenced by the Symbolists and Surrealists of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries movements in art and literature that tapped the far reaches of imagination and the intimate embrace between word and image, poetry and picture-making. What all the artists in this book share, whether their style is as densely decorative as that of Vania Zouravliov, Tim Hon Hung Lee and Laura Laine, or understated and spare like that of Makiko Sugawa, Deanne Cheuk and Jules Julien, is a strong sense of the decadent and the fantastical. Their images access parts of the imagination unfettered by reality and enter into a universe of dreams.
