‘Non-Stop’ The New Picture Book by Tomi Ungerer – German, French and English editions announced.

It’s been 7 long years since Tomi’s last picture book (Fog Island 2012) and so it’s a special moment when the publication of a new children’s book comes along.

Non-Stop has a story so rivetting for today’s world while it shows that special dedication to design and layout that one has come to expect from Tomi.

The narrative unfolds within the perilous journey of a character called Vasco – we follow him on a trip like no other, there will be many twists and turns along the way for sure and of course a special ending…

The book is out now in German from Diogenes Verlag. In French from Ecole de Loisirs and in English from Phaidon
