Lisbeth Zwerger

Lisbeth Zwerger's drawings are so structurally stunning, add this to her surreal imagination and you have a true genius of illustration, which is why she is one of the most honored illustrators alive today. 
These works are from The Wizard of OZ by L.Frank Baum published in 1996 by North South Books. It constantly frustrates me that books like this go out of print and then are virtually impossible to get. You would think in this day and age it would be easier to print to demand or something, to make these classics more easily accessible.


  1. beautiful colors and drawing

  2. I have quite a few of her books, including the Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland.
    I have found some in thrift stores also.
    True gems, like you say and luckily still reasonably available in Holland (published by De Vier Windstreken).

  3. I don't know if this helps, looks like a different edition, but still has the illustrations:

  4. I have this book and love it. I bought it with a damage on the cover corner years ago. I was happy to get it on sale. Her work is great!
