It’s refreshing to see the diversity of this man. I’ve always heard he was multifaceted. It’s too bad that a large majority still think Peter Max was responsible for the look of Yellow Sub.

Here are four images of book distributors from F.A.Z.

I knew Edelmann appeared regularly in this publication but the only time I found an American newsagent that carried it, the magazine section wasn’t included. These pictures were sent by an antiquariat in Europe who took pity on me and tore them out of his copy.

hi luke, you really seem to like his work. could you do me a favour and post soem of the childrenbook pages? its hard to get it from over here. otherwise you will be very happy soon, I am planning to post a lot of his FAZ illustrations and some other stuff I found in my archives.

I helped assemble material for Dr Bob Hieronimus’ book “Inside the Yellow Submarine”, which was a very hurriedly condensed edit of long, very thorough interviews he conducted with almost everyone who worked on the film. Edelmann opened up at length, detailing the problems he had, and how he and Charlie Jenkins revised the film after it’s London premiere.

Could I speak to you privately?

Here’s a demonstration of why Edelmann was concerned about animation mass production methods for “Yellow Submarine”.

vor vielen jahren hatte ich ein buch in einem Twen illustration verpackt. erst jetzt dachte ich dass es vielleicht eine nette idee wäre dass ganze zu scannen und auf Flickr zu posten. ja, aber dann wusste ich nicht mehr wer der zeichner war. gegoogled und noch und abermal und jetzt bin ich so ziemlich überzeugt dass es von Heinz Edelmann ist

übrigens gab’s Twen während den ganzen sechziger jahren, und nur noch kurz in den siebziger:

from hans –
no, I am sure it is not EDELMANN. there were some other illustrators with a similar style. one of them was edda koechl. it could have been
her. edelmann was way more designed, and the composition would have been much stronger.
