Karaluchy pod poduchy / Cockroaches under the cushions

Cockroaches under the cushions is a children’s picture book; the Polish equivalent of the famous lullaby “Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bedbugs bite”. The lullaby is constructed from texts from Wislawa Szymborska and the artist’s own illustrations. The illustrations, both within the book and also on a set of pillowcases, form a collage with fragments of photographs. The images are mainly black and white to attract the eyes of children.
