Illustration & Bookdesign Franziska Walther
Erasmus is a really particular elk. He dreams of being out in the open and seeing new things, something other than the forest he has known all his life. He starts running and discovers new horizons, seas, hills, valleys, a city! Until one day he just stops. In sum, Erasmus embodies a meaningful tale about longing and arriving.
Franziska Walther employs large-sized illustrations, sequences, or poetic pics, in order to tell the story of an elk that rises above all expectations. This is her first picture book, after three novels she has illustrated for Kunstanstifter: Peter Schlemihl’s Wondrous Journey, The Time-Saver, and Werther Reloaded.
