In Case of Lost Childhood by Leon Keer, the Dutch street artist who conquered the world, explains his working method and allows you a glimpse into his creative mind.

With a unique 3D cover Leon Keer is the master of optical illusion. The 'Dutch JR' plays with perspectives and creates a whole new world. One in which Snow White is stuck under a door. Or a world in which you unexpectedly enter a seventies living room. This is his first monograph. He allows the reader an exclusive look into his world and imagination. How does he work? And how does a wild idea develop into a gigantic 3D artwork?
