Anna Kocmanová / Handbook of a Little Frottage Artist

This handbook is a far cry from a tedious compendium, for it is a poetic guide which uses a funny and unorthodox way to inspire young readers to look, to search, to imagine and to create. It awakens enthusiasm and tells them that even the book itself can be used as a sample to produce frottages.
At the same time it represents a direct onslaught on teachers to forget torridness and enrapture themselves with… yes, with frottage! Imagination knows no limits and the book can be an inspiration, play, poesy, instruction sheet, or everything together.
