Description

If you weren't a child of the 80s growing up in Germany, you've probably never heard of Karl May -- he was a pulp fiction writer most famous for his Wild West tales. I've been working on a set of cover illustrations based on his collected works. Here's a small sample!

Come on, Karl May was HYUGE in the (former) Eastern Block. I'm not a German nor didn't grew up in the 80s, yet I've read almost all of his books. That without even mentioning the Winnetou adaptations starring Pierre Brice.

It didn't start to fall out into obscurity until, dunno, Harry Potter rolled in and truly fell out few years later. I even asked out of curiosity my cousin about it (she's born in '02) and she had no idea, so I guess that does align with my HP assumption.
