Today with Adolf Born and Petr Nárožný
Today we launched All The Elephants In the Orchestra, an original anthology by Miloš Macourek illustrated by his long-time collaborator and esteemed artist Adolf Born. The launch’s MC, Petr Nárožný, the actor whose voice always narrates the duo’s cartoons, said the book deserved to be a hit worldwide.
All The Elephants In the Orchestra: the selection of poetry and prose for children and adults alike commemorates Macourek’s immense fantasy and peculiar sense of humour, capturing everyday life in all its complexity and absurdness. Comedy, combined with a deep, almost philosophical insight and subtle, yet apt criticism, distinguishes the author from others.
