    Franziska Walther: Der Zeitsparer

Vibrant illustrated book from German artist Franziska Walther

Posted by James Cartwright,

Illustrator Franziska Walther hails from Germany’s historic and cultural capital, Weimar – land of the Bauhuas, Goethe and Bach – and produces appropriately excellent imagery. Her recent illustrated book, Der Zeitsparer (The Time-Saver), a short text by pre-war Jewish writer Kurt Tucholsky, is a beautiful tome of lithographic beauty, printed in four spot colours that let her illustrations leap from the page. For a recent graduate we have to say we’re pretty darned impressed with Franziska’s work. If she’s capable of such a beautifully illustrated book this early in her career just imagine what she’ll be accomplishing in years to come. Watch this space…
