Hair von Katja Spitzer

Did you know that out of 100 people, only two or three are natural redheads? In Scotland and Ireland one out of ten people is a redhead. Go redheads!

There are more hair facts to read in Katja Spizter’s new illustrated book, Hair: From Moptops to Mohicans, Afros to Cornrows (Prestel Press). Hair is complicated, but Ms. Spitzer has approached the subject head on (pun intended), briefly covering the history of hair and hairstyles from various cultures. The text is straight forward, aimed at young readers 5-7. The fun and color-saturated illustrations are appealing to all ages.

Ms. Spitzer is a Berlin based freelance illustrator. She’s won many awards and has exhibited her artwork in Germany and the UK.
