The Locomotive/Ideolo Hardcover

Julian Tuwim
Joanna Ruszczyk
The Locomotive, by Julian Tuwim, is one the most famous Polish poems for children. Designer Malgorzata Gurowska and journalist Joanna Ruszczyk present its graphic and literary reinterpretation for adults. Tuwim’s poem stimulates the imagination with a description of contents in wagons of a train sitting at a station. Gurowska and Ruszczyk, in their version, the railway wagons are full of Jews, aggressive football fans, soldiers, gays and lesbians, animals, as well as inanimate objects. 
 
It is all accompanied by political commentary, summarizing inequality and social injustice. In this way, the authors challenge not only Polish reality with difficult questions about national identity, racism, anti-Semitism, and attitudes towards ecology and animals. Written by Julian Tuwim, with art by Joanna Ruszczyk and Malgorzata Gurowska.
