What Do you Look Like?

Why normality does not exist

Does my bellybutton look funny? How muscular should you be? Why isn’t my hair straight? Even at the early age of 10, children often compare their bodies to ideal images from various media. Where can we see real bodies? Naked tummies and bottoms, skin and hair in all their natural shapes and colours?

You are allowed to look in this book. Candid watercolour illustrations show body parts in all of their (im-)perfection. Short texts explain what has been declared beautiful in other places or at other times. Gives impulses to ask questions and get conversations going!
