Franciszka Themerson's unforgettable pictorial journal of her first two years spent alone in London, 1940-42, stranded by war and separated from her husband Stefan. This brilliant series of sometimes artless, primitive drawings vividly evokes a Europe in chaos, using descriptive narrative, religious allegory, dream imagery and caricature. There are shelter drawings (Henry Moore, cry your heart out!), images of the blitz, of God as a hunchback, and a blind man with a stick, of the Polish government-in-exile, and others in which animals appear to be the only sane beings left on earth. A moving and immediate, meaningful book.
