Illustration Master Oct 30, 2006
This incredible book for me is a totally new way of illustrating a fairy tale. The description of this fantasy world using postcards is innovative and very interesting. I strongly suggest this book to all the art lovers.
My eyes were opened and my heart was inspired. Jun 11, 2006
As an artist of middle age, I sometimes think of my art as good and my growth as complete... that is, until I look at work like this.
Suddenly I feel like a beginner again, with nothing to do but learn and get better at my art. Mr. Scheurer teaches this teacher how to teach better, just by the inspirational settings he creates and the drawings he does from deep in his imagination. There is a whole world residing in him that is too fanciful to describe. He is my new favorite artist.
Wonderfully Charming May 25, 2006
Even though this book, at first glance, appears to be an art book, there is a very charming story woven into the "stamp" descriptions, as well. Each page features an illustration of a stamp from the imaginary realm of "Entropia" and a description of the event or history the stamp is commemorating. I read this book in two sittings, only because I had an appointment to keep that tore me away from such a beautiful book. Once finished, this book left me with a strong desire to read and see more of Christian Lorenz Scheurer's "Entropia".
Great art book and story. Apr 13, 2006
Christian is one of my favorite artist. This new book is full of great stories and wonderful pictures! It's great for all ages.
I love this book Mar 19, 2006
Bought this book as a gift for a friend but then ended up keeping it for myself. The fantastic story and beautiful illustrations felt like a mix between Nick Bartock's Griffin and Sabine and Miyazaki's Spirited Away. This is most inspiring fantasy book I read this year!:)
