Fairy tale house of Marburg

Buildings, Illustrations, Travel

Marburg was home to the Brothers Grimm while they penned some of their most famous fairy tales. And the setting fits so well, with winding cobblestone streets and perfectly preserved houses from hill to hill, the lot shrouded in thick forest – it’s easy to expect the unexpected in this fairy tale land…
This house particularly struck – the drawing doesn’t even dent the amount of intricate details on offer. It’s also red!
But like the drawing as it is for now… IMG_7609.JPG

Here’s the house this is based on!

Karuski is the nom de pencil for me, Katherine Mengardon - I am a fan of all things 1960s, CAKES, obscure indie pop bands, children illustrations, bad puns and cats. Any spare time goes towards baking mad cakes, drawing families and catified musicians.
