Scarce first edition of this avant-garde German picture book, incorporating new concepts in child psychology which Seidmann learned in part from her uncle, Sigmund Freud.  Illustrated by Seidmann-Freud with delicate and unusual color lithographs on every page, plus a beautiful double page color spread.  Seidmann-Freud's illustrations bring to children's books concepts from Modern art - especially Constructivism, with a touch of the surreal.  

AS IS! Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
