When friends of Axel Scheffler receive mail from him, it can be a small, very private work of art.
The exhibition shows a comprehensive selection of envelopes that the Grüffelo cartoonist has painted and designed, as well as selected graphic responses.
It thus documents a network of artist friendships (with Anke Kuhl, Thomas Müller, Philip Waechter, and Julia Donaldson, among others). Above all, however, it shows the artistic originality of the world-famous illustrator Axel Scheffler and is a declaration of love to the analog correspondence of the letter.
A joint exhibition of the Museum für Kommunikation Frankfurt and the German Book and Type Museum of the German National Library in Leipzig.
