A Long Piece of String

William Wondriska | Chronicle Books 2010

Graphic designers make a different kind of kid’s book. They see differently, draw differently, and give a lot of credit to their readers. A Long piece of String, by William Wondriska was originally created in 1963 and has been just republished. A wordless story that is simple, bold, and clearly timeless. Gorgeous and loose drawings printed in red and black ink on warm uncoated paper—all strung together to tell a graphic story of scale, form, nature and even the alphabet. The unwrapped cover is worth the price alone. Here’s to Chronicle Books for reissuing this rare jewel.
