About The Book

This wordless book captures the heart and drama of the famous marksman and Swiss folk hero Wilhelm Tell with bold, bright illustrations by Warja Lavater.

Told in pictograms inspired by Manhattan street signs, Lavater turns characters and objects into symbols in this lavish accordion-style fold out book. The drama literally unfolds, with the direction of an arrow motif. Originally published in 1962, NorthSouth is proud to bring this design gem back into print.
