An unlikely character for a coloring book, Jean Genet has never looked more friendly and approachable than he does in Let’s Play!. Drawn in the simplified cartoon style of so many “educational” books for children, the robberies, prison stints, gambling tables, beggars, lice, and tattoos pictured on these pages teach children about a world beyond the reach of their scribbling scrabbling crayons.

Computer printed. Colored laminated cover. Includes handprinted lithograph on Magnani Pescia paper, signed and numbered. Spiral bound. 28 x 22cm. 60 pages. Signed and numbered edition of 100. 2005.
