A dark children's book and fable for adults by Oliver Jeffers, also a beautiful design object, made from lithographs at the historic Idem in Paris.

A TIME Best Children’s Book of 2019! A Chicago Public Library 2019 Best of the Best Book! A quirky, cautionary tale from beloved New York Times bestselling picture book creator Oliver Jeffers! There was once a man who believed he owned everything and set out to survey what was his. "You are mine," Fausto said to the flower, the sheep, and the mountain, and they all bowed before him. But they were not enough for Fausto, so he conquered a boat and set out to sea . . . Combining bold art and powerful prose, and working in traditional lithographic printmaking techniques for the first time, world-renowned talent Oliver Jeffers has created a poignant modern-day fable to touch the hearts of adults and children alike.
