Cruel Frederick | Sanya Glisic
Dimensions: 16.5″ x 11.5″
Illustration from Sanya Glisic’s reimagining of a German children’s book during her Fall 2010 residency at Spudnik Press.
Struwwelpeter, first published in Germany in 1844, contained ten cautionary tales for children, each one with a clear moral and overly exaggerated consequences for misbehavior. Artist and Illustrator Sanya Glisic created a new version with whimsical and playful illustrations that capture the dark, often morbid sensibilities of the tales.
