ABOUT: In a series of essays and comics that are at once academic and intimate, cartoonists Jane Mai and An Nguyen delve into Lolita subculture and their relationship with it. Empowering and beautiful, but also inescapably linked to consumerism, the Rococo-inspired fashion is indulgent and sublime, pretty and rotten. So Pretty / Very Rotten: Comics and Essays on Lolita Fashion and Culture by Jane Mai and An Nguyen, with additional materials by Novela Takemoto, Published by Koyama Press, April 2017.
