Take a look at some other woodcuts from Die Sonne. This is the first of four Masereel books that I recently picked up at the Emory library. I’m sure I’ll enjoy the others over the next week or two.

  1. Oh, man — I freaking love Masereel. Thanks for putting these up. I found a book of his (pen/brush + ink) drawings, which is weird a) because I’ve never seen any b) because from a distance, they look just like his woodcuts.I’m going to scan them next week and put them up.
