Budi is a trip along a river through the land of Budi (slang for an outhouse in Hungarian). With long horizontal pages – many of them foldouts to further capture the extensive landscape -- the ‘budi’ world is populated with anthropomorphized outhouses busy with life and its activities.
In the first days of 2020, Böröcz & Silverberg returned to the Budi edition, adding walnut ink printing, adding an overt scatological component to the bathroom-laden humor. The hand stamped words repeat themselves in 5 different languages.
