I treated myself to a picture book by the amazing Tomi Ungerer!
I love children's book illustration in the style of the 60's and 70's and I am particularly fond of this book, as it seems to be screen-printed, or made in some other kind of printmaking-technique. The story is about 3 criminals who start an orphanage, but that's what I love about children's books from that period, the stories just used to be so much more brave in content!
Anyway, if you havent heard of Tomi Ungerer yet, look him up right now, he is a legend!
