Books and Curses

comic, illustration, sketch

Bibliothek_09_final

This is an illustration I did for Klett und Balmer, a Swiss school book publisher. Swiss school books are so much cooler than German ones. the motif is an illustration of a curse engraved in a library in a monastery in Barcelona, cursing people who steal books. The curse is quite drastic, as you can guess from the illustration. They chose it to illustrate who valuable books once used to be.

I would like to thank graphic design agency KnowIdea based in Freiburg and Sonja Schäfer for a brilliant cooperation. Unfortunately their homepage is in transition, but anyway:
