The children’s book « Through the night » is the winner of the worldwide illustration competition “Picture this!” and illustrates on 8 double pages a German ‘Klapphornvers’, meaning a piece of popular poetry comparable to the English ‘limerick’. It goes like this:
Two boys were walking through the night,
the other smoothly.
They could hardly been seen
And what if
They had not existed at all?
Explanation: In the last scene, the fear that two robbers were pushing a cart with booty through the night turns out to be an illusion projected on drying laundry on a clothesline: it seems to have come to life by the wind. The work has been realized through a collage technique using different kinds of paper.
