Childrens Bookshelf: COLOS

I found this strange vintage children's book today at a great shop in Champaign, IL, entitled The Student Who Became a King In Spite of Himself. The illustrator is Francois Szalay, also known as Colos, a Hungarian-born designer who specialized in collage, often incorporating stamps into his work as seen in some of these images. This was his first children's book. Below the images from this book I'm also including a couple of pages from his 14-year collage diary which looks really interesting.
