Der Vogel Gryff (Emil Ruder)

We have absolutely no idea what this book is about. It’s clearly about half-lion, half-bird griffins, but we can’t tell if it’s for kids or grown-ups. But here’s what we do know: It was illustrated by Véronique Filozof, designed by Emil Ruder, and could not be more charming or lovely. Entirely in German, these pictures are worth a thousand stories (and $200 if you buy it here).
