A record of the artistic creations by Yannis Tsarouchis collected by his apprentice and friend Dionysis Fotopoulos. Tsarouchis believed in the beauty of the simple and the spontaneous. His artworks did not have to be grand to be meaningful. The book is filled with ephemeral art objects such as paper flowers, cardboard collages, preparatory set models, masks, sketches, painted vases, greetings cards, foil and paper jewellery, and painted-over photographs. Texts, quotes and archive photographs support the illustrations.
