By Aven Wildsmith
Tamlin is a short graphic novel reimagining of a classic Scottish folk ballad written in fluid verse. Aven Wildsmith creates a magical and atmospheric tale through colourful and queer lens – creating room for queer love and queer hero in Scottish folklore.
Janet takes refuge in the forest and falls asleep, only to be awakened in the starry night by the etheral presence of Tamlin. As they get to know each other, they fall in love, but Tamlin is not free – not free to love and embrace Janet or leave the fairy realm in which she is trapped. In order for Tamlin to be free of the Fairy Queen’s hold and to be held by her loved one, Janet must step forward and break the spell.
Aven Wildsmith is queer, non-binary, and Autistic author and illustrator. They live England with their black cats. They love nature, folklore, mystery, fairies, and being queer, and these subjects are all usually present in their art in some way.
