frans masereel

i am a big fan (and collector) of the work of flemish woodcutter frans masereel (1888-1972), he was a commited socialist and made illustrated books that were often based around social themes and the plight of the working classes, one of my favourites is ‘the story without words’ of which i’ve owned a facsimile for years, i recently found an original german imprint dating back top 1927, which is beautiful
