The man with no shadow

1238586909-sc-331

I picked up a book today, a tale retold by the prolific Michael Rosen, and illustrated by Reg Cartwright. I would not part with my shadow, but if I did I would expect a better response, in this place, in this time, than this poor man did.

The story apparently goes back to “Peter Schlemihl’s Remarkable Story” written in 1814 in German by Frenchman Adelbert von Chamisso.

Georges Schwizgebel from Switzerland produced this wonderful glass-painted animation which I just discovered today while looking up the book – “L’homme sans ombre”
