Florian Afflerbach: Der Zeichner


Florian Afflerbach was an amazing urban sketcher and architect.
I wish I’d known him; I wrote to him once to tell him how his drawings were an inspiration to me… I’ve seen many many architects turn to art, but Florian’s work was exceptional.
When the crowdfunding for a tome about him was offered, I immediately said yes…


His pencil + watercolors were my favorites, and this book is full of
inspiration for me to peruse for many years.  They are delicate but not timid,
and the buildings are served by his beautiful renditions.


He painted some of my favorite architect’s buildings.

I think most will know him by his images of cars and bikes.

The book is 300 pages of amazing commentary, and mostly, images!
His legacy will live on…

    Wow, that looks like a really cool book! I will have to save up my shekels….. or euro, as the case may be! Wish Amazon carried it…… his work reminds me a little bit of Alex Hillkurtz, who is on the Watercolour Sketchers page….. simple, light, but so beautiful!
