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!
