This is How it Happened is an artist’s book dedicated to a body of comic watercolor works made by the artist Amelie von Wulffen. She paints a bucolic world inhabited by fruits, vegetables, sausages, tools and paintbrushes, recalling the traditional genre of children’s books. But the series’s enchanting style belies its deeply serious themes—isolation and violence, discipline and failure, trauma and humiliation.
