Jewish printed books
  Bilder-Bibel für Kinder gezeichnet von Otto Geismar, Berlin, 1928

© Gross Family Collection, Photographer: Unknown,

This text was prepared by William Gross:

Otto Geismar illustrated three Jewish books in Germany: a Haggadah, an Esther scroll and bible pictures for children.  All three are in the gross family collection. His use of simplified stick figures lends an unusual charm to his drawings. Geismar left Germany in the 1930's and immigrated to Toronto, Canada.
