Rüdiger Tillmann is an illustrator and cartoonist. He lives and works in Hamburg and Cologne – and in the landscape he is currently drawing. We became aware of him mainly through his drawings of the forest.

His b/w drawings of sections of the landscapes drawn for EUROPEAN ESSAYS ON NATURE AND LANDSCAPE – we show them in the preface and postscript – are the door into the book. Extraordinarily meticulous and varied, to be viewed on many levels, drawn with the smallest of pens, they each open up the cosmos of the landscape in question. It can not always be the essence, but always the peculiar.

We are pleased about this collaboration.
