    One thought on “The Lonely Ones”

    1. Some of these drawings, along with their well-selected captions, are great. See, for instance, "MOTHER LOVED ME BUT SHE DIED" and "IF YOU ARE GOOD-NATURED, PEOPLE STEP ALL OVER YOU." My 1942 edition, unfortunately, is missing the "25 new Lonely Ones" apparently added to later editions. I'd love to see them.

    2. Exquisite distillation of the torture of and desire to be human. (I looked for myself here and the effect was even greater because I wasn't.) I don't want anything more than hand-sized books with this many pages.
