To Kill a Mockingbird/ Busch 1962

Illustrations by Wilhelm M. Busch from the German 1962 edition of To Kill A Mockingbird.
Beautiful line drawings that define mood, depth of scenery and personality. I am eating this stuff up.
These compositions are rock solid and a delight to study. My film Mushka is somewhat influenced by Busch's style. As I mentioned before, it is fascinating to see what the artist puts down and what he leaves out!
Book illustrations at its finest. Damn!

  3. Damn, indeed! Is it possible to find a copy of this German or English anywhere? Willing to pay good money for it.
