Tomi Ungerer: America

Edited with text by Philipp Keel. Text by Tomi Ungerer.

A charming portrait of 1950s America from the author of the children’s classics The Three Robbers and Moon Man
This extravagant book presents 330 of Tomi Ungerer’s illustrations, paintings and collages, many of them previously unpublished. When Ungerer moved from the Alsace to New York in the mid-1950s and began working as a graphic designer and illustrator, a crazy new world opened itself up to him, which the artist transformed into what are perhaps the most remarkable and powerful works of his career—expressive and universal pictures that present the land of opportunity in an inimitable manner.
Tomi Ungerer (born 1931) failed his final school exams yet subsequently hitchhiked throughout Europe and published his first drawings in the legendary Simplicissimus magazine. He began his extensive career as an illustrator, children’s book author and artist in New York. In 2003 Ungerer was appointed the first Ambassador for Childhood and Education by the Council of Europe, and in 2007 the Tomi Ungerer Museum opened in Strasbourg, making him the first living artist with a museum dedicated to his life and work in France. In 2014 he received France’s National Order of Merit, and in 2018 he was appointed Commandeur de la Legion d’Honneur by French president Emmanuel Macron. Ungerer lives with his family in southwest Ireland and Strasbourg.
