“Im Schatten des Baobab”
Tic Toc Tausendbein and other stories from Burkina Faso
Travelling 3 times along the inspiring countries of west africa,
I was collecting, translating and finally illustrating this collection
of traditional fairy tales from Burkina Faso. Inspired by the west african ornamental arts and crafts i created all illustrations based on scraper board, to give it a rough and edgy feel.
Jaja Verlag, Berlin 2015
clothbound, 2-colored silk screen cover
I also was asked to make a special edition for Büchergilde Gutenberg . The so called “Vorzugsausgabe” comes along with a signed and numbered original 2-colored linoprint.
If you are interested in the original scraper board graphics, please send me an Email.
