I’m German. Well, by blood, not birthplace. I still feel German . . . sometimes. I felt it full-on when I saw these images the other day on the Etsy blog. They spoke to me – I was just drawn in. Is it my German blood that attracts me to these or are they just my aesthetic?

The book is called Malbuchgeschichten, by Ilse Firbas  and illustrated by Heinz Kiessling. I’ve tried to google it to get my hands on a copy, but I can’t read German! The images are just stunning. They remind me a bit of the Wizard of Oz. If you find it somewhere for purchase, let me know!
