About the author (1993)

Etienne Delessert was born in 1941 in Switzerland. For more than thirty
years the self-taught artist has been translating his and the world's ideas,
passions, fantasies, and nightmares into the visual language of books,
magazine illustrations, posters, animated films, paintings, and sculptures.
His imaginary creatures and landscapes juxtapose chaos and order,
the familiar and the fantastic, the serious and the joyous, to clarify this
world and create new and surprising universes. Delessert has illustrated
more than eighty books, including collaborations with avant-garde playwright
Eugene Ionesco and renowned psychologist Jean Piaget. His internationally
acclaimed books have been translated into more than fifteen
languages and have garnered numerous awards and distinctions, including
ten gold medals from the American Society of Illustrators. He lives in
Connecticut with his wife, designer Rita Marshall, and their son Adrien.
