This book is a work of art, which I’d recommend for Carmi’s abstract illustrations alone. Published in 1966, it tells the tale of the atomic bomb. Atoms were everywhere, doing no one any harm, until the Generals discovered “smashing” them would create a terrifying explosion and forced them into shells. The peace-loving atoms find a way to defy the Generals (no spoilers here, but flowerpots are involved). In summary - the greatest explosion that never was.
