Walter Grieder I

I adore these bold, woodcut illustrations by Walter Grieder (1914-2004) over plain blocks of colour for 'The Enchanted Castle' published in 1965. Walter Grieder attended the arts and crafts schools in St. Gallen and Basel. He then worked as a commercial artist in Paris and London. From 1957 he worked as a freelance illustrator in Basel illustrating both self-written stories and texts by renowned authors. From the 1980s onward he worked primarily as a painter, draftsman and printmaker.
