This copy of Pitschi is an ex. library HB without a DJ. The covers are like shiny linen. It was published by North-South Books in 1996. This is an oversized book that measures 12 1/2 inches X 8 7/8 inches. Condition: Acceptable--the spine has seperated between the front end page and the front cover, and has been taped (look at second picture); most pages are crisp and clean and show slight handling; binding is tight; cornerwear on the covers.
Hans Fischer was a Swiss children's book illustrator after WWII. He attended the School of Fine Arts and Industrial Arts in Geneva, and the School of Art and Commerce in Zurich. The art is this book is lithography (where the artist draws the picture directly on large stones--one for each color). Stunning artwork throughout.
I do combine shipping. THANKS FOR LOOKING! Any questions? Please send me an email.
