Tomi Ungerer: It's All about Freedom
Text by Aria Ungerer, Thérèse Willer, Belinda Grace Gardner, Thomas David, Dirk Luckow.
Collages, drawings and more from the legendary illustrator and author of The Three Robbers
From early childhood drawings of the 1930s to collages and objects from the last decade of the artist’s life, Tomi Ungerer: It’s All about Freedom presents a comprehensive cross section of Ungerer’s vast oeuvre for the first time, revealing the political and stylistic lines and breaks in his career as a “freewheeling artist.” With an abundance of illustrations, the book includes many unpublished and unseen works from the Ungerer estate, and celebrates his unceasing passion for experimentation across genres and the interplay between drawing, collage and assemblage.
Accompanying essays—by the artist’s daughter Aria Unger, Thérèse Willer, Belinda Grace Gardner and Thomas David—examine the continuities and motifs across the many genres Ungerer traversed.
