All Dark

  • July 1977: in the middle of a stormy night, a power failure puts New York city in the dark. A stunning die-cut leporello book.

     

    A little girl searches for her mother, with 3 matches in her pocket.

    3 matches, 3 bright moments, a giraffe, a saxophonist, the chaos caused by this extraordinary event, are illustrated in a magnificent leporello.

    The delicacy of Amandine Piu's illustrations and the poetry of Gilles Baum's text are once again perfectly combined in this book.
