In Schematics: A Love Story, author Julian Hibbard meditates on love and memory by virtue of connecting and disconnecting to schematic diagrams. Every spread pairs a quietly unfolding, enigmatic narrative with a visually arresting schematic diagram. Whether illustrating simplistic dance steps or charting chemical decomposition, the illustrations and text play off one another, reminding readers that what might look simple at first glance is in fact complex. As readers try to reconcile how the images and text work together, they will find themselves more and more engaged with the puzzle, discovering new possible meanings. Schematics is a sparse and poignant illustrated fiction that questions whether or not love and memory can fit into schematic diagrams. The book will also include an index that explains the original schematic diagrams, which adds another layer of intrigue to this short but memorable fiction.
