Adam Kilian II

As we travel deeper into autumn in the Northern hemisphere, it is time for a classic 'Misie nie chcą spać', written by Ludwik Górski and illustrated by Adam Kilian (1923-2016), published in 1973. Adam Kilian studied Architecture in Nottingham from1944-1948. but on returning to Poland became one of the lead creatives working in puppet theatres. 

"My mother and aunt salvaged the qualities of childhood from oblivion. They taught me what was most important in art: frankness, joy and making choices." Adam Kilian


 This wonderful book features many real pressed leaves and has unique illustrations with areas of colour overprinted with woodcuts.
