“Der Tod von Basel” woodcuts by Rudolf Schiestl

“The death of Basel: eight woodcuts by Rudolf Schiestl to the old folk songs”. Heyder, Berlin, 1924

There are eight woodcuts in the series that roughly translate from the “Der Tod von Basel” 1535 song lyrics here.

I’ve subsequently updated the design to have larger type and to correct the date.  These show a date of 1910, but it is actually 1924 when the book was published.
