Yesterday I read about death of Graphic designer Heinz Edelmann.
The article informed me that the 75 year old, Czechoslovakia born (1934), German illustrator and designer was best known for his work as art director of the 1968 Beatles film Yellow Submarine. And Heinz Edelmann was also known to have designed the book cover of the first German edition of J. R. R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings.”
As I read the news, I realized I had recently come across some of his brilliant creations in a rare book that I stole from a dear cousin of mine; the book is simply titled 'German Advertising Art', Edited by Eberhard Hölscher and published in 1967, Bruckmann (Munich).[previously posted]
I am sharing Heinz Edelmann's rare works that can be found in this fine book, these include: theater and film posters, a book jacket, record sleeves and a calender. (Also adding some information about the works for which Heinz Edelmann created these masterpieces)
