In Memoriam Vicco von Bülow alias Loriot (1923 - 2011)

As you already could read on the ECC Facebook page, we received the sad news that the great  German cartoonist Loriot, passed away on August 22 at the age of 87.
The Washington Post calls him "the beloved humorist who defined the German sense of humor".

As a tribute , we let you enjoy some nice 'vintage' cartoons of the artist and the covers the some books
A Loriot cartoon was also on the cover of the "Cartoon 61" catalogue (Diogenes).

On YouTube you find many animated cartoons by the artist. (see example below)
