    Inspired by the picture book Les Intrus, comes a series of odd-one-out board books for the youngest readers.

    Bastien Contraire is the co-founder of Papier Gaché, an independent publisher of fanzines and art books that promote contemporary drawing and comics. His stencil picture books have been re-published in for the English-language market by Phaidon as Undercover and Hide and Sneak, using the type family Kurversbrug on the covers.

    Kurversbrug is paired with caps from DIN 1451 Engschrift for the subtitle. The author’s name is set in Futura on the covers and another unidentified sans on the title pages.
