Poppies of Iraq

by Brigitte Findakly and Lewis Trondheim

Brigitte Findakly's illustrated memories of a middle class upbringing in tumultuous Iraq is equally enlightening and harrowing. Her husband Lewis Trondheim beautifully illustrates the memories that keep Iraq close to her heart long after she was forced to leave. (112 pages, 6.2" x 8.2", Drawn & Quarterly, 2017)

Mountebank
