Luftwaffe Skizzenbuch

by Hans Liska, 1942

Hans Liska was one of the most famous illustrators in the service of the German Armed Forces in World War II. This is an album published in 1942 with his illustrations.

Also, in 1943 an album with reproductions 36 aquarelle (color) paintings (printed by Carl Werner, Reichenbach i.V.) by Hans Liska was published in both Finland and Sweden. The paintings depict various front motives, including extremely realistic aircraft pictures. The layout of both Finnish and Swedish editions of this album and the pictures is identical. The only difference is the first page: on the front page a one sentence introduction by Hans Liska, and on its back a list of contents with captions of all drawings which is printed in Finnish and correspondingly in Swedish.
This album (which now is a real "collectors item" in Scandinavia) was apparently published in other European languages as well.

Skizzenbuch - Sketchbook

Upon the suggestion of the Junkers Airplane and Motor Company this booklet was assembled from pages of my sketch-books, for the enjoyment of the fighters at the front and the armament workers at home.
The book at your hands has been arranged from pages of my sketch booklet by encouragement of the Junkers Flugzeug und Motorenwerke AG, to please the frontline fighters (soldiers) and the workers of the weapon factories in the homeland.
