Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mr. Ungerer [is] a virtuoso and a renegade."
The New York Times

"Ungerer's mastery of line is a marvelous thing…"
The Washington Post

"How do I describe the seemingly effortless line work and the intimate understanding of the human form to be found in the pages of 
Babylon? In these drawings, Tomi Ungerer witnesses and records our human foibles and frailties, however dark, through the lens of humor. He unapologetically prods us into identifying our flaws so we can see ourselves more clearly. And the humor, always the humor. This is one of the best examples I’ve seen of how an artist can use humor as a subversive tool. If we don’t laugh we cry."
Anita Kunz (Another History of Art) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
