The Witch’s One-Time- One (mini edition)
»This you must ken / From one make ten / And two let be.« So begins Goethe’s famous poetic The Witch’s One–time–one (Hexeneinmaleins). A crazy witch’s spell, a rejuvenation charm for Faust, or in fact an intricate game of numbers?
Wolf Erlbruch addresses the mysteries Faust’s phantasmagorical formula poses by conjuring his very own kaleidoscopic kingdom of form and colour. Readers prepared to study this work in detail will feel just like Faust, for whom everything suddenly became so light and playful: a fantasy game of a very special kind from the hand of a master of illustration.
