Salome

In Autumn 2015, I published a fully illustrated edition of Oscar Wilde’s Salome – but with a few changes.  In my edition, Salome is a boy, and Herod – to keep the gender balance of characters fair – is a woman.  This allows the reader to explore more interesting power dynamics within the text, as well as representing a few more forms of attraction than previously.  As usual with my work, some of the characters are transgender.  This does not affect the text.

The book is available in super-luxury hardback format and can be purchased here!
