NOUVEAU CATALOGUE (électronique)

Our artist collective Poste Aérienne is now active for seven years.

At this celebration, we set up a new website with full catalogue of our print publications. It presents our main projects like the silkscreen Accordion Books or the Mikrokosmos Box, as well as all single books in varied shapes and sizes. 

Artist Books coming soon!

It has been a time of rich cooperations with a lot of German and international independent illustrators. We've had the opportunity to work with numerous excellent bookshops and galleries in Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy and the States - like Ivory Press Books / Supalife Kiosk / Last Gasp.

Poste Aérienne got to know great contemporary publishers like Media Vaca, lovely book and zine festivals like Grafixx, and of course - which is always a big pleasure - a lot of charming readers.

Hot off the press and now available in all book stores is a highly recommended book with hundreds of – birds. To be honest we should recite the book's complete title "Illustration – 100 Wege einen Vogel zu malen/100 ways to paint a bird". Because that leads to its real topic which is actually "Illustration".

On more than 330 pages author (and artist) Felix Scheinberger writes about our profession and passion, taking a look at art history and discussing the future possibilities of drawing and illustration.

The book is fully illustrated (only birds!) by more than 100 illustrators from all over the world. Poste Aérienne artists also take part of this fine publication. 

"Illustration – 100 Wege einen Vogel zum malen" by Felix Scheinberger, is published by Verlag Hermann Schmidt, Mainz.

Grafixx zine fest 2013 (Antwerp) had extended compared to last year! More lectures, expositions, zine and silkscreen ateliers, life sketch, zine shop and more… Poste Aérienne got again the opportunity to sell it's publications. Headliners for me was a lecture of Ward Zwart and exposition of Benoit Guillaume.

Cheers, Leen



We had the nice idea to reprint our first (and now sold out) silkscreen poster/accordion-book "Seven Reasons Not To Travel" in a second edition – together with our current silkscreen-project "Why Are We Sleeping?". Here are some fast snapshots from the printing.

We chose new, fresh colors...

… and worked again with our favorite silkscreen-printer Olli Nerlich (Berlin, Neukoelln).  

Accordion Book and Poster are now available!

 Out now is a new silkscreen accordion book by Poste Aérienne titled "Why Are We Sleeping?"

Thanks a lot to all participating Pilots of Poste Aérienne – Leen Van Hulst, Frederik Jurk, C.Pom, Adrian Wylezol, Cleo Schwinkowski, Ib Jorn, Boris Servais – and to our new Pilote d'Essai – Nadine Kolodziey.

This lovely three-color book (edited by Dieter Jüdt) is dedicated to the lunatic singer-songwriter Kevin Ayers.

 I've always liked this special existential melancholy in his music, his sense for harmonic nonsense and catchy refrains, his balancing between a friendly surrealism and sometimes dark expressionism. Not to forget his distorted bass guitar playing!

"Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win."  This quote expresses quite well what this publication is about: experiencing our inner forces - the forces that are hard to deal with - like our fears, our arrogance, our aggressions, or even hatred.

If monsters live inside us, are they part of us?
And if they are, is there a way to fight them?
Or is there a way to turn their threatening company into a friendly, helpful presence?

This card set is first of all a graphic series: a humorous reflection of the many shapes that monsters have taken over thousands of years.  The publication contains a leaflet with a comment about the psychological aspect of meeting our monsters.
Printed on fine conqueror paper, this box can serve as a gift for friends of strange and individual illustration, or as a set of elegant postcards.

Three graphics created in this summer, when nature 
with its insects and sweet herbs or rank weeds was still alive.




2013 the Frankfurt Book Fair was once again an extraordinary 
event for Poste Aérienne. We met many, many charming guests 
and visitors – magazine and book editors – friends of Art and 
Book Illustration all around.

We enjoyed the time in Frankfurt very much and it would be a
 pleasure to meet you again in 2014.



Since a few months now, Poste Aérienne has a new "Pilote d'Essai" -
A young artist who joins us for single projects, discussions and art-related exchange.

Nadine Kolodziey (1988 GER) is a Berlin/ Offenbach based designer and illustrator. She studies visual communication at Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach am Main. Together with Eike König and the ASC team, she formed the graphic design festival After School Club. With Poste Aérienne, she's first present in our new silkscreen leporello "Why Are We Sleeping?". 



From 9.-13. October Poste Aerienne will be once more part of the International Frankfurt Book Fair. For the (magical) seventh time! Besides our small press publications, fine books and prints we are especially happy to present:

- A brandnew silkscreen accordion book titled "Why Are We Sleeping?"
- The reprint of "Seven Reasons Not To Travel" - our first silkscreen book – in fresh new colors
- A new card-collection dedicated to some of the scariest creatures that ever walked on earth

As guest artist the talented Antje Herzog will be back with us.

See you at our booth at hall 4.1, Q12

PS. Our this year Book-Fair-Flyer was designed by C.Pom



 First Pencil drawings for a new and real thrilling bookproject about the time of Westafrican civil wars and their effects on people, life and society. An exciting cooperation with international artists, photographer and writers. 

More new material coming soon!

Our new printed Silkscreen Accordian Book has the wonderful theme SLEEP, that reminds me to a unique book of mine, I presented at Frankfurt several years ago. In about two weeks POSTE AÉRIENNE will be present at the Frankfurt Book Fair for the seventh year.




After our live-drawing event with Adrian Wylezol last year, Meakusma have commissioned an illustrated cover for INNERCITY's upcoming single at their sidelabel ORRE.

Cover Illustration: Boris Servais
Design: Ina Kurthen
Thanks to Michael and Christophe!



Within a two-month period a series of new graphics 
came into being, which could be realized 
as silkscreens in two colours black and gold. 

More visual ideas are on the anvil.




Shish sookie singabus
Snored like a red merry-go-round horse
And an acid gold bar swirled up and down
Up and down, in back of the singabus
And the pantaloon duck, white goose neck, quacked
Webcore, webcore

(from "Those little golden birdies, look at them" 
by Don Van Vliet)

 Recently I found some time to work again in my beloved papercut-technique. I worked with an older image (a drawing of native indian dancers wearing birdlike masks and costumes) and draw it again, now in a bigger size. Than copied it on various colored papers, cut it out and pasted it together into three different versions. 

The circle shape of these collages is inspired by photographies of the 19th century and relates particularly to the photography work of James Mooney.

This final image will appear in a forthcoming book, a new and extensive publication around the topic "Illustration", edited by fellow artist Felix Scheinberger.
