Wilhelm M. Busch 1965

In the mid 1960s Busch illustrated a little book with short poems and one-liners by Georg Opitz.
Here are a few drawings from this edition.
I am still crazy about Busch's economy of line, he leaves out a lot of stuff  to get to the essence of a situation. His characters' attitudes are always contrasting and interesting. So brilliant! 
The line to go with the image above is: Cheerfulness is God's benefaction.
