“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.
