Book Art For Children in Vienna, 1890-1938

I wonder if the children of Vienna knew how lucky they were to be exposed to such beautiful works and colourful images of utopia? This book takes you to a specific period and place where artistic taste and craftsmanship shine through children's stories. It also speculates on the social and political influences on the work, inviting us to look at book art for children in general in a different light. Thought provoking and beautiful -lucky kids.

The book includes illustrations by Henriech Lefler, Koloman Moser (above) as well as many other unknowns.

Available at Artwords, Broadway Market
