Heidelberg wimmelt since 2017
„Heidelberg wimmelt“ was my first search and find book. Heidelberg has a very special place in my heart and in my life. It was the first city I visited in Germany, when I was invited to get to know some distant relations that lived there and it as special and homey to me like a child’s favourite cuddly blanket.
I got to know Silberburg-Verlag, the publisher, at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2015 and was given the commission to draw the illustrations in 2016. There are more than 900 working hours in that book – a bundle of research, event drawings, on site sketches, rough drafts, and final illustrations. And there are over 200 real Heidelberg residents depicted in it.
The picture stories are made primarily for the residents of Heidelberg, as a thank you to the city that became a turning point in my life. (internal link to the text about Café Heidelberg) and a city that fulfilled a big dream of mine.
„Heidelberg wimmelt“ is also intended for its visitors, who are often tourists on very whirlwindy vacations, so that they can remember the sites and the hidden wonders of Heidelberg. It also makes a great present for the folks back home.
And of course, „Heidelberg wimmelt“ is for children. They usually find the Wander Mice and the hidden stories a gazillion times faster than the adults.
There is always something new to discover in „Heidelberg wimmelt.“
„Heidelberg wimmelt appeared in 2017 in Silberburg-Verlag and is available at local and online booksellers.
