Literally Me by Julie Houts
Julie Houts has been called “Instagram’s Favourite Illustrator” by Vogue.com, and it’s probably true. Houts’ Instagram account has 203k followers, and her sarcastic comics satirizing fashion-girls and influencers have a loyal cult following. Based on Houts’ fashion industry experience, thanks to her years working as a designer at J Crew, the comics show a bevy of hilarious fashion situations mocking the industry fads. In a new book, a collection of illustrated essays about the modern female experience will be printed among Houts’ signature comics. Titled ‘Literally Me’ as a reference to the plethora of Instagram comments from users who identify with her drawings and humour, Houts’ publishing debut promises to be an unmissable (and hysterical) fashion book and coffee table essential.
