Frans Haacken (1911–1979) was an overlooked collaborator of Bertolt Brecht, an accomplished illustrator and author as well as a creator of animated cartoons. After three years of research this book not only tells his life on both sides of the Iron Curtain and monographically paints a portrait of his artistic legacy but also arduously compiles his surviving oeuvre.
