Alle Jahre wieder saust der Presslufthammer nieder oder Die Veränderung der Landschaft

Language: German. English translation: “Every year the jackhammer goes down or the landscape changes.” 7 folded coloured illustrations sheets in a fine condition. The artist was awarded the German Youth Literature Prize in 1974. In haunting pictures the Swiss artist shows the change in landscape within a 20 year time-span. An almost untouched natural habitat is increasingly becoming a clinically clean and concreted cityscape by human hands. On each of these seven colourful, foldable panels you will discover a wealth of details. The pictures tell of the gradual destruction of nature, the suppression of the habitat for humans and animals that is still happening today.
