Container Corps is proud to announce the release of a new edition of
Der Struwwelpeter, illustrated by Alisha Wessler. Der Struwwelpeter is
a gothic book of children's morality verses written by eccentric German
psychiatrist Heinrich Hoffman in 1845. The book is notable for the
brutality that is inflicted on those children who misbehave. Artist
Alisha Wessler reinterpreted the stories with a series of new drawings.
