Fred Bauer

Tschlip '1971' by Fred Bauer is a German book about a bird escaping its owner and having some frightening adventures in the wild. The illustrations are beautiful, bright watercolours. Fred Bauer is a Swiss graphic designer born in 1928 famous for his woodcuts, posters, glass and children's books.


  1. Do you know if it was cut paper after creating watercolor textures? These are amazing! :) e

  2. Now you have said it Elisabeth, I think it does look as though it is collaged. They remind me of Brian Wildsmith because of the vibrancy and pattern.
