We were asked by The New York Times to tell a story on our childhoot pet:
When I was about 5 years old I took my cat, Heinrich, with me to kindergarten. I carried him in my arms on the way there, and left him to wait for me outside until school was over. When I came back he was gone. I walked home and hoped he would be there, but he wasn't. Every night I stood on the doorstep and called out his name — “Heinrich!" — into the dark garden but he never came. It was the first real loss in my life, and I was so sad.
Five years later my father came home with good news: He had found Heinrich! A colleague of his, who lived a few miles away had adopted a stray black and white cat at the time Heinrich got lost. I was so happy to get him back after all those years. But when we arrived at the man’s house, Heinrich didn't recognize us. He was an old cat quietly enjoying the twilight of his life — so we left him there in his new home.

“Von einem, der auszog das Fürchten zu lernen” is a modern interpretation of the well-known Grimms’ fairy tale “The Story of the Youth Who Went Forth to Learn What Fear Was.” In eleven double-page spreads it tells the story of a boy on his way to adulthood, who explores and crosses his own borders in search of himself.
The pictures tell the story without text and try to leave scope for individual interpretation. An extra booklet containing the original text is attached into the jacket flap at the end of the book.
The book was awarded in the international competition “Best Designed Books from all over the World 2010”, it won “Gold” in 3x3 Pro Show, New York and it was rewarded in Picture Book Awards, Korea, among others.

“Glorious Types” is a symbiosis of illustration and type design. On eleven double-page spreads Daniel Dolz illustrates a complete team of legendary football players from various nations and from different decades. The book shows a varied mixture of most diverse characters (goalkeeper, strikers and defenders) which also is reflected in the choice of fonts. For each player Daniel Dolz designed a special font which coheres with the illustration.
In the side flaps of each illustration spread you can find a list with facts and short anecdotes of every player and the complete alphabet A-Z.
