The long out-of-print first edition of this collection of whimsical paintings. Foreword by Nick Bantock.

From the publisher:

A miniature pig splashing in a bowl of soup; a duck leading a wheelbarrow down a country lane; a woman gently stroking her daughter's face with a rabbit: take a trip into Sowa's brilliant and darkly comic imagination, where a menagerie of creatures adopt strange personae and pop up in the most unexpected places. In the same realm as Chris Van Allsburg and Maurice Sendak, Sowa's paintings take on the other-worldly look of a whacked-out fairy tale - each work full of irony, a wry Brothers Grimm for grown-ups. These witty and satirical images - a cross between Magritte and The Far Side - are sure to attract a well-deserved and passionate following in the States. Michael Sowa has published several books, including monographs and children's stories. His playfully macabre paintings are immensely popular in his native Germany.

Sowa, Michael
