The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain - Peter Sís This is an unusual autobiography. It is more graphic novel than picturebook, and the graphic design offers features of a strong informational book (such as the white space). Sís' stylized cartoon illustration harks to the 1960s and 70s art he notes in the book--San Francisco magazines, psychedelic record album covers. It's fascinating to see the idealized view of the West, knowing that contrast is what makes it so.
