Il sogno dell'elefante by Yan Cong
96 pages b/w, 15x21, 2010
italian/english, 12 euro
The first international edition of Il sogno dell’elefante is a breath of fresh air. With dreamy candidness the pechinese Yan Cong mixes up the fairy tale with the underground features, the psychedelic with the traditional chinese prints, videogames and mangas with The Theatre of The Absurd. Together with sexual pulsions, school, football and sausages.
"An oniric black and white, loaded with passions and impulses. The first real proof of how the perception of
eastern comic could change in Italy as well"
Gianluca Testa (Artribune)
