Hans Tisdall

A great image from the relatively forgotten designer Hans Tisdall.Tisdall was born in Munich and settled in Britain in 1930. His clear coloured illustrative style was highly suitable to the task of making staple knowledge attractive for children, in Balbus, A Picture Book of Building 1944 Tisdall shows this to great effect. Tisdall was also a very gifted painter and producer of designs for printed textiles.
