Der Struwwelpeter Book Release Party

der struwwelpeter

Container Corps is hosting a release party for the new edition of Der Struwwelpeter, illustrated by Alisha Wessler.
Thursday, July 8th, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Container Corps Headquarters (1322 N Killingsworth Street)

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. To celebrate this publication, please join us for a release party at Container Corps headquarters, featuring an exhibition of some of the original pieces featured in the book and beverages provided by Ninkasi Brewing.
