"Die 12 Tierkreiszeichen (The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac), 1948, edition of 525, Lovis-Presse, Schwenningen. Described as a woodcut book, like the above, no set type is used. Measures 9.2" x 8.5" x 0.4" (23.4 cm x 21.6 cm x 1.0 cm).

Dating to 1948, this is the first of his woodcut books, but not a narrative. It is interesting as it actually has four images for each sign (and the cover) for a total of 49 images. As you can see, he has an image of the actual constellation, an image with the date, name and symbol, an image of the animal/figure and an image of a stylized form. Very charming." Michael T. Ricker
