  • Deskins s own art, colorful sketches and body prints, unapologetically splash across the page in bright strokes while Wiseman s handwritten prose snakes up and around, balancing and accompanying the artIt made me want to linger, to touch the page, run my hands across the color and script It was of an experience than just interpretation s what s just under the busy surface that s most appealing the wildly complex social constructs of female body, and the symbol of the bra as the ultimate carrier [...]


  • Intimates and Fools is a cheeky, fun read that explores women s complicated relationship with our undergarments and breasts We are poked, prodded and pinched into our bras and can t wait to take them off We shop for the newest colors and styles, shuck out small fortunes, and then curse their restrictiveness Laura Madeline Wiseman s poetry will have you conspiratorially chuckling and each page of Sally Deskins painted illustrations are frame worthy This short book is a great gift for your sister, [...]


  • It is interesting to think about the garments that only the woman and her chosen one, or few, get to view There is a unity among women expressed through exploring these ideas, which is displayed in a fun, imaginative, and relatable way in Intimates and Fools The concept of having a book of illustrated poems dedicated to breasts and undergarments is charming and yet sweetly simple We all form relationships with our undergarments some even bring us luck Wiseman finds multiple viewpoints for descri [...]


  • Intimates and Fools is both fun and thoughtful It reminds me to laugh AND to focus Many of Deskin s body paintings are heavy one reminds me of a two headed burqa , while her small drawings are light and fun Wiseman s smart reflections on bras take me from F.Scott Fitzgerald to Judy Grahn, from bra burning to the shopping mall, from necessity to indulgence.


  • Sincere as well as playful, Intimates and Fools reads as a modern feminist reflection about our relationship with bras Beautiful images and charming hand drawn text makes this book a fun and engaging read Share it with friends and explore your own complex relationship with this invisible yet ever present undergarment


  • A delicious, beautiful little book where the bra becomes a metaphor for all the containing a female life must do At turns funny and sad and sexy, this study of our intimates becomes a study of intimacy with ourselves.


  • win Will read and review once received.This was a cute and playful read It was a quick read and I can see many different people reading this book, as well as enjoying it I loved how it explored women s relationship with undergarments The images in the book were beautiful and made the book that much enjoyable I can definitely see myself passing this book along to close friends.


  • Intimates and Fools is a great example of an artist writer collaboration that truly works as a partnership The images enhance the words, and vice versa, neither overwhelming the other Full of vibrant lines There are no fools here, I say in a whisper, a prayer a hope.
