Gustave Verbeek's Upside Down Comics

I BOUGHT a book with drawings of Gustave Verbeek. What a gem it is ! It features little comic strips you can turn upside down and just read on ! How much of a genius can one be ? Especially if you take into account these little masterpieces were created between 1903 and 1905. Here's a fine example of the series "Little Lady Lovekins and Old Man Muffaroo". Awesome title or what ?


  1. wow, excellent!

    thanks for sharing, this certainly is food for thought...

  2. "Accidentally"?! You went to a bookfair, for crying out loud. One can expect to find books there! :)

  3. allez goodday mister sakerohopperdeplop! (want die are you toch hé?) maak je no worries voor randall, randall floats on opgestoken handjes and confetti. but hou u vooral not in to buy 'Slaapkoppen' alsnog! Ge gaat not sorry to be!
