Rotown Magic: Dutch text with supporting illustrations by Louis Gauthier.
Author: Jules Deelder (1944) is well known as a poet. This playful man, night mayor of Rotterdam and permanent wearer of butterfly sunglasses, draws its strength from performing his stories instead of reading them.
Illustrator: Louis Gauthier (1981) is a creative producer, composer and multimedia designer. Gauthier broke through in November 2009 with the album Dansen op Spijkers on a collaboration with writer and poet Gerrit Komrij. The album was published in the form of a CD-book. Totaal Loss with Jules Deelder became his successor. Previously he produced the CD Verder Kijken in collaboration with Spinvis and Ingmar Heytze. Gauthier completed his film and television studies at the Utrecht University with his Master's thesis Cobra and Camera, in which art is connected with experimental film.
