In Her Boudoir: An 1134 Press Journal Collection

15 Oct

 

This collection of handmade journals, Boudoir, was inspired by Victorian grandeur and kitschy eclectic styles. From images of decadent furniture, traditional portraits and jewels, I not only wanted to capture what I saw happening in fashion this fall, but to create journals that inspired me to write.

Of late, I’ve been thinking about the intersection of the act of journaling and the physical journal. Aside from the journal being a place to jot down ideas and observations, and its use a therapeutic tool, there is something about journaling that is sensual. What you doodle, or write in your journal are presumably for the self—like an act of cognitive masturbation. When thinking about my personal journaling in those terms, I wanted to create a journal that created a romantic atmosphere. Thus, in this collection there are rich pinks, deep blues, golds, and floral patterns that adorn the covers. Boudoir is nothing short of feminine. The choice to use images of furniture grounds the journals in a home of magnificence.

We’re starting Halloween a little early this year at 1134 Comix. This 10 page Halloween Special will update from now until October 31st. The schedule will be pretty loose, and sometimes more than one page will be posted per week. Actually, this story was started last Halloween, but an MFA thesis kind of got in the way of finishing it anywhere near Halloween. So, I put it on the shelf and decided to put it up for Halloween 2017. So here’s the first page. The next one will be up real soon!
