Jo Daemen cover designs

From the collection of Anne Aalders

I read about Johanna Maria Hendrika Daemen (1891–1944) on feuilleton and then found some book covers she designed. These are from 1928 to 1930.

I try not to think about how much I would pay for a copy of Hilde Krüger's 1924 children's book Der Widiwondelwald. Some links (in German): one, two, three -- see the full book as smaller images at the last link to the kibook blog.

I kept coming across this book when working on my Kinderbuch series over the years.
