WILHELM M.BUSCH illustrated this novel written by heinrich seidel – LEBERECHT HUEHNCHEN – in 1962. it’s the life story of leberecht huehnchen in the early part of the last century in berlin, germany. to me it looks like the illustrations were done with a ballpoint pen, some in pen and ink. publishing house is bertelsmann verlag.

the illustrations below are from the 1955 published novel TANZPAUSE (dance break), written by VICKY BAUM and illustrated by WILHELM M.BUSCH. I am posting all 12 illustrations in a bigger size, so you can see the incredible quality of BUSCH’s artworks, all done in pencil. he creates such an atmosphere in these simple line drawings, captures moments in a way a photograph could never do. BUSCH never used any photographic reference, but he usually studied and sketched situations of his daily life, especially in the circus or during his lectures at the art academy. when you take a closer look, you can see the rough basic composition lines. the final drawing looks so effortless written down. whenever I look at his work I am speechless and in awe.

JOHANNA SPYRI, 1827 – 1901, was a swiss author of children stories. probably her best known book is HEIDI, what some of you might remember as a japanese ANIME series – HEIDI, GIRL OF THE ALPS, produced in 1974. the series was directed by ISAO TAKAHATA and – HAYAO MIYAZAKI did the scene design and the layout!
WILHELM M.BUSCH illustrated in 1948 a collection of 6 stories by johanna spyri- AUF BERGESHOEHEN -, HEIDI AUF DER ALP was one of them. the illustrations are all drawn in pen and ink, but you can still see the influence of the woodcut technique, wilhelm busch concentrated on for a while during his studies.
