Ungerer is back.

JULY 28, 2008
Looks like one of my all time favorite artists, Tomi Ungerer, is finally being published in the States again. After being a huge name in the childrens book market (let alone all his poster, cover and other illustrtion work) in the 60's, he fell out of favour with childrens book publishers stateside-mainly for publishing a bunch of books of what he calls "erotica", one of them aptly named "fornicon". Great stuff, I assure you.
Phaidon now has purchased the rights to some of his childrens books and plans on re-publishing them....
