Janosch IV



I am constantly drawn by the delicate painterly beauty of Janosch's early works. these illustrations are from Joshua and the Magic Fiddle published in the 1960's. It tells the tale of  the son of a charcoal burner who is to small and weak to follow his father's profession. A bird gives him a magic fiddle and teaches him a special song that can make things bigger and stronger.
