Friederun Friederichs

Born 1944

Friederun Friederichs’s deep interest in what influences the human mind and her ideas regarding life, death, and suffering are reflected in her artist’s books.

Nature, travel, and literatureparticularly fairy talesfurther nourish her imagination and sensibility.

Initially, Friederichs studied history, earning a PhD and publishing on the history of municipal law. It was her work with a wide array of historic book artifacts that sparked her interest in artists’ books.  

In 1988, she turned to painting and printmaking full time, and in 2001, she began creating artist’s books. Her books are made from conventional and unusual materials, such as paper, glass, metal, and wood. Friederichs currently lives and works in Germany and in Northern Italy.
