Monday hero: Adolf Born

Some years ago, at the Children's Books Fair in Bologna, I bought a book about the work of the Czech artist/illustrator Adolf Born (1930-2016), just because it looked appealing.

Born's work is clearly Eastern European, in a long tradition of graphic work.

Often they are lithographs, you can see the shape of the stone it was drawn on in the rounded corners and the chips on the edges.

The images are absurd, allegorical and amusing, with beautiful subtle color changes.
