Video: Tomi Ungerer

Tomi Ungerer may be best known as a children's book illustrator, but his work encompasses much more than that. Here's a clip from the upcoming documentary abut him. The title for the film, FAR OUT ISN'T FAR ENOUGH, is taken from his book about his time living a self-sufficient life in Nova Scotia from 1971 to 1975.

I've bought a couple of copies of that book -- and always given it away to friends. At the moment, I am without it. FAR OUT ISN'T FAR ENOUGH is worth finding, especially if you are living an urban life and wondering what it would be like to give that all up.

Big hat tip to Vintage Kids' Books My Kid Loves.
