We all know his drawings, but hardly anyone knows the painter: Ludwig Emil Grimm has always stood in the shadow of his famous brothers, for whose fairytales he provided many illustrations. It is only now that his genius is discovered: Grimm drew several comic stories on self-made paper scrolls, setting the stage for such famous classics as “Max und Moritz” by Wilhelm Busch.
In his wonderfully absurd comic story about the life of the especially peculiar and loving pig from Ihringhausen, Grimms draws a tongue-in-cheek portrait of his compatriots with a pointed pen and a lot of black humour.
Over 150 years later, there is finally a new edition of this curious story available in the originally intended format.
A book abstract can be seen here.
We publish two editions:
Classic – for purists, as close as possible to the original, brushed up for enhanced legibility
Coloured – color has been added to chosen elements of the work, giving it a fresh, modern look (available September 2017)
