The for-adults collection of humorous comics by the award-winning children's book author—whom Maurice Sendak called a "marvelous cartoonist"—in a newly designed edition.
Director Jonathan Miller, from his introduction to the 1964 edition: "Ungerer illustrates a world where things are coming apart, where the old unquestioned entities are at best provisional arrangements, loosely thrown together and never to be relied upon." The humorous comics and illustrations collected in Underground Sketchbook are as timely now as they were then, if not moreso. This is a powerful dose of visual ingenuity, moral outrage, and bemused disgust at the human comedy.
