About this Item

12mo. 28ff. From an edition of ten copies, this is an artist's proof, signed by the artist and printer, Robert Andrew Parker, and with twenty-eight illustrations hand-colored by him. This unsettling book depicts often strange examples of German words for each letter of the alphabet. Essen stands in for the letter "E," and the city is shown with billowing clouds rising from the factories looming behind the cityscape. The letter "Z" is represented by "Zahnarzt," or dentist, and is illustrated by a rather ominous-looking dentist's chair. Robert Andrew Parker is a prolific fine artist and illustrator, with work in the collections of leading contemporary art museums. His illustrations have appeared in hundreds of books and magazines, including Pop Corn and Ma Goodness by Edna Mitchell Preston, which was a Caldecott honoree. Parker is especially interested in depicting images of war, gaining national attention after his illustrations of imaginary battlefields were printed in Esquire in 1960. This fascination is also evident in Ein Deutsches Wörterbuch, where "J" is for "Junkers C21," "T" is for "Toten Kopf-Husaren" (Death's Head Hussars), and "Y" stands for "Yperit" (mustard gas). Leaves unbound as issued and housed in a cardboard and wood box fabricated by the artist and stenciled with "Wörterbuch" on the front cover. Fine.
