What is this? That’s how a curious person asks and he asks from morning till nighttime, so that he will be wiser. What is this?
A fairy, a shrew mouse, a wart hog, a doll munching beast. That’s how someone, who has already seen more of the world, would answer without hesitation. But as he doesn’t by all means know everything, he needs to invent something from time to time. And he does so surprisingly well.
Jürg Schubiger has put together questions and answers; subtle and mischievous. Wolf Erlbruch illustrates – with visible delight—those little pieces of the world that prompt the questions asked: a fairy, a shrew mouse, a wart hog, a doll munching beast.
Erlbruch and Schubiger – birds of a feather that complement each other perfectly: one provides the word, the other counters with an image – Brigitte Jakobeit, Die Zeit
