Sudan’s Rhino Horn is based on the true story of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, who passed away in March 2018 at the age of 45. Revolving around Sudan’s horn, the symbol of a rhino’s existence, the story reflects the complex relationship between human beings and wildlife.
Based on the true story of Sudan with fairy tale style, we look back the life of Sudan. There are three times of cutting off the rhino’s horn in the story: the first time was Sudan’s mother; the second time was in the zoo in Czech; the third time was in Africa:  his horn was cut off in order to protect his life. 
The rhino’s horn has a strong symbolic meaning: the horn is a rhino’s crown and strongest weapon to protect life and territories. But the saddest thing of Sudan is, it will kill his life although the horn is his proud and a symbol for his identity. His corn could not co-exist with his living body.

A is van Os (A is for Ox)

Authors
Text – Bette Westera
Concept and illustrations – Autobahn

Handling rights: Simplified Chinese (sold), Complex Chinese (available).

Anyone who can read knows the 26 letters of our alphabet. But where do those letters come from? How long do they exist? And who designed them?
Autobahn and Bette Westera take you back to the time of our distant ancestors, who made a drawing if they wanted to ‘write’ something.
Slowly but surely, their drawings changed into the first letters. If you look closely, you can recognize our current alphabet.

And guess what? A is not for Apple at all, but for Ox! After reading this book you will understand how this came to be. You will also understand why, whenever we send each other emoji’s, we actually do the same as our distant ancestors over 5000 years ago. An educational and special letter book for all ages!

拼貼作品往往透露著藝術化的混亂與無秩序;它熱衷於誇張的表現手法,挑撥觀者的視覺神經,以及激發觀眾再看一眼的欲望。拼貼藝術通過組合看似違和的視覺素材,營造讓觀者難以忘卻的印象。

當世界變得愈發數位化以及千篇一律,從剪刀、膠水以及藝術探索與創作中獲得的樂趣則越多(更別說我們不需要為創作而投入一大筆錢購買成堆的材料和工具,也不需要進行創作前精心策劃)。在拼貼藝術中,任何形式的表達和創作手法都是自由且不分對錯的。Natascha Fix將從簡單的創作小貼士開始,帶領你邁入精彩的拼貼創作世界。

Gouache the All-Rounder

Gouache is the all-rounder that makes your dreams of painting and drawing come true. Newly discovered and presented by Aljoscha Blau, one of the most renowned illustrators in German-speaking countries. Diluted, working with gouache is almost like with watercolour. Used as a paste, the paint is applied in opaque layers with a matte surface reminiscent of pastels. Soluble in water, it forgives “mistakes” and allows for corrections and revisions. The fine grain of the pigments makes detailed drawings possible. Gouache dries quickly, is non-toxic and inexpensive. Multiple international award winner Aljoscha Blau shares his many years of experience in this book, offers shopping and material recommendations, tips for swift success, suggestions on composition, tools and work steps. And he spices it all up with his own illustrations, which are both an incentive – and a feast.
