Quotes and Cartoons in Das grosse Lebenshilfe Buch

Sometimes cartoons are used to illustrate books. One of such books is 'Das grosse Diogenes Lebenshilfe Buch' (Diogenes, Zürich, 1979, ISBN 3-257-79034-1, 290 p.). Translated, the title means 'The big Diogenes LifeHelp Book'. It's a very SMALL book with 333 quotes and proverbs about life. This booklet is illustrated with some cartoons by the famous cartoonists Bosc, Chavel, Loriot and Tomi Ungerer.

There is a strange thing in the book on page 34 there is a Bosc cartoon, signed 'Chaval'!
