The Onion’s Great Escape

This vibrant, wacky book by Sara Fanelli about an onion and its need to explore life and escape the “big fry” is meant to be torn apart, scribbled in, folded over, thrown about. Its thick pages smell of colorful ink and the mechanical parts of the press that gave it life. It demands total sensory immersion. Part drawing pad, part journal, part philosophical exploration. This book is what I imagine the inside of Marlo’s brain looks like right now.
