Staff Reviews

A super relatable read about Olive, a young woman is trying to figure out her life before going to college. She’s struggled with her body image all throughout her teen years and it only gets worse when she begins a summer internship at a fashion agency surrounded by skinny models and editing software. Follow along as Olive learns to accept and love herself in a world that seems to revolve around unrealistic expectations and likes on social media!


— From Saucy September Staff Picks


"One of the most memorable debut graphic novels in recent years."--IGN

Olive is spending the summer before art school at a coveted internship, helping one of the fashion industry's elite digital-imaging specialists. After a glamourous New York photoshoot, she learns that taking pictures is only the first step. She discovers the violent verbs (cut, crop, slice, lasso) of image retouching software and the secrets behind virtual models.

Soon Olive is fixating on her own appearance and pondering the ethics of her work behind the scenes. As college gets closer, she'll try to get out of her own head, attempt to quit the Internet, and finally embrace image-making on her own terms. Unretouchable is a window into the little-known, hugely influential world of fashion photography and a tribute to self-acceptance.

"A tribute to self-acceptance."--AIPT

"Unretouchable perfectly utilizes the form to talk about the consequences of images and how they can be manipulated."--SCREENRANT
