A Drip. A Drop. A Deluge: A Period Tragicomedy
About the book
What do newspapers, bread, cosmic changes, and the uterine lining have in common?
A Drip. A Drop. A Deluge: A Period Tragicomedy takes us on a journey through the eyes (and wombs) of six different women, from the girl who is experiencing her very first period, to the lady going through menopause, and how they – and the people around them – experience their monthly cycles.
Menstruation is an intimately personal yet shared experience that can sometimes be hard to talk about candidly, but it’s time to put menstruating bodies at the heart of the conversation. Inspired by true stories from Asian women, this beautifully illustrated short comic by Andeasyand shows the lived experiences of unique, individual bodies, and brings to light the commonly undiscussed symptoms and trepidations of periods – heavy, regular, or nonexistent.

Writer & Illustrator
Andeasyand is a Nurulhuda Izyan born and raised in Singapore. In an effort to use up old name cards after her first marketing job, she discovered the world of illustration, and found ways to describe the beauty of the ordinary with doodles and scribbles. With that new power, she navigates difficult topics like menstruation, anxiety, marriage, weight, as well as silly daily musings. An acquaintance described it as risque tendencies – she calls it an olive branch to a like-minded stranger.
