Binette Schroeder's Well of Stories

This beautiful anthology boasts 10 beloved children’s picture books by one of the icons of German illustration—Binette Schroeder.

Including The Frog Prince; Laura; Crocodile, Crocodile; and more! This artist of fantasy and reality, has been working with NordSud and NorthSouth since their inception. A master of her trade, Binette has received numerous awards including the highly regarded German Youth Literature Prize. This indelible collection is being offered in time for her 80th birthday. 

Binette Schroeder was born in Hamburg, Germany. After studying graphics at a Munich private school, she studied at the University in Basel for design. Lupinchen, her debut, was an artistic breakthrough. Her artistic oeuvre was awarded the Special Prize of the German Youth Literature Prize in 1997, and the Grand Prize of the Academy for Children and Adolescent Literature in 2004. Today she lives with her husband Peter Nickl in near Munich.

As a fairy tale collection, this is similar in style to Hans Christian Andersen. As an artwork collection, it mirrors surreal painters like Leonora Carrington. But as a contemporary catalog Binette Schroeder's Well of Stories stands on its own merits.
