Synopsis:

A fun display of Halloween folk art. Combining intricate artwork with short poems, this collection captures Halloween themes with poems of spiders, bats, and pumpkins. Each original entry is displayed in the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect with an English translation. The artwork, a traditional style of scissor cutting, is cut from black paper, overlaying an orange background. A brief introduction reveals how this group came to celebrate October 31, and an instructional page includes a pattern for readers to make their own Halloween paper cutting.

From the Inside Flap:

The intricate designs that fill this collection of Pennsylvania Dutch scherenschnitte feature rambling phantoms, laughing ghosts, and dancing witches. The accompanying poems, written in the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect with an English translation, conjure the spirit of Halloween.

As old as the culture itself, this style of scissors cutting is a cherished tradition. Through exacting incisions and artfully shaped features, Peter V. Fritsch creates elaborate cuttings with sinister moons, mischievous jack-o-lanterns, and frightful ghouls. A brief history of the Pennsylvania Dutch culture and dialect, a glossary of dialect terms, and an instructional page for readers to make their own Halloween paper cutting round out the book.

Peter V. Fritsch has practiced the art of scherenschnitte (scissors cutting) and fractur (calligraphic drawing and lettering) for more than four decades. A seventh-generation Pennsylvania Dutchman living on his ancestral farm, Fritsch fluently speaks and writes in the dialect. He is a retired teacher, having taught art in the public school system and Pennsylvania-German history and culture at the college level. Fritsch lives in Alburtis, Pennsylvania.

Book Description Pelican Publishing Company, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Bilingual. Language: English . Brand New Book. No one else has ever created such a fantastic Pennsylvania Dutch Halloween. -C. Richard Beam, director, Center for Pennsylvania German Studies at Millersville University The first collection of Pennsylvania Dutch scherenschnitte just for Halloween is accompanied by original poetry in the native dialect with an English translation. As old as the culture itself, this elaborate style of scissors cutting is a cherished tradition. The artful precision used in the cuttings lends a menacing air to dangling spiders and slinking black cats. The poems capture the feeling of the holiday, describing witches dancing with mystic glee and Hallow s Eve spirits that clamor and bump. A brief introduction reveals how the Pennsylvania Dutch came to celebrate October 31. Details of what they wore, their choice of holiday food, and how they decorated are included. A glossary at the end lists dialect words next to the English translation for accurate interpretation of the poetry, and an instructional page features a pattern for readers to make their own Halloween paper cutting.
