these illustrations to storm are beautiful. storm is great anyway.
Antonia, I think this is a Czech translation of "Die Regentrude" - can you confirm that? I can't remember why I translated the title as "Storm Queen" and don't have the book in my hands.

yes it's "Regentrude" it's a fairytale. storm queen isn't so wrong, after all there is a lot of rain at the end of the story.
Dešťová víla = Rain fairy
there is a song by CAN called "Don't turn on the light, leave me alone" - is there a connection?
thanks Antonia, Ana, and Josef.Sarah, I had indeed been listening to that Can song when putting the post together. I now think the Kudlacek hand looks like it's about to pinch a light switch.
Try to look at the illustrations made by czech artist and writer Josef Váchal (1884-1969). I think you will find them interesting. There are some of his woodcuts available online at http://www.vachal.cz/. Wonderful blog, by the way. Keep being obsessed,please...
