Excerpt from the press release:

"Struwwelpeter, first published in Germany in 1844, contains ten cautionary tales for children, each one with a clear moral and overly exaggerated consequences for misbehavior. In one parable, a mother warns her son not to suck his thumbs. The son continues his habit. A tailor with giant scissors joins the scene, and the story heads in a dreadful direction. Artist and Illustrator Sanya Glisic, while a Resident Artist at Spudnik Press Cooperative, has created a new version with whimsical and playful illustrations that capture the dark, often morbid sensibilities of the tales. Glisic's book is a handbound piece of art containing 36 pages of full color screen prints"
