One Potato Review

Ljungkvist uses her amazing talent for connecting whole drawings by a single line, here to go traveling the world. Fun facts: under its white fur, a polar bear has black skin; cobras are deaf; deer are excellent swimmers. The line itself is very cool to follow, but you could spend days exploring outside of its contours, and all of these destinations are striking (and probably more memorable) for their different colors. Shades of purple work well with New York. And Ljungkvist visits the Russian taiga of all places. Because someone eventually needed to.
