A portfolio of expressionist linocuts by the German painter, Heinz Baden (1887–1954).

The linocut series was inspired by the German Meistersinger, Hans Sachs’ (1494–1576) 1530 poem, Schlaraffenland. The portfolio contains nine, numbered linocut illustrations along with the text of the poem, printed mainly on a large, double-page plate, continuing with a short part on the last plate.

Extremely scarce, we could not trace any copies in institutional holding.
