"Hullo, my name is Anie, I'm autistic, among other things, and I wrote/illustrated my book to show you what it's like to live in my head. There are visuals of my oversensitive sensory system, the surreal nature of living with Synesthesia, illustrated maps of social/sensory theories I've made to make sense of the world, the history of the people who live in my head, and more.
Because of my unusual position in all this, I felt compelled, nay, duty-bound, to fill the void between the outside world and the various states of mental aberration that I hold. There are times I've felt I was made for this sole purpose, and for the longest time I feared dying with it unfinished.
I fear it no longer. Cheers!" -Anie
Anie Knipping is a brilliant author, illustrator and artist. Her book, “Eccentricity”, illustrates her beautiful psyche and what it is like to live in her world as a person with autism.
“Anybody who is interested in creativity should experience this book. I think it will help people understand the sensory world of a person with autism.”
- Temple Grandin, author Thinking in Pictures and The Way I See It
