Manderscheid's Soccer Players

Roger Manderscheid, the great Luxembourg poet, novelist and artist who passed away earlier this month (here),  published a lovely book of his color drawings on soccer themes back in 2006 with an introduction by his friend, the  other excellent Luxembourg novelist in the mame loshn,  Guy Rewenig (possibly still available from editions ultimondo, 16 rue d’Olm L-8392, Luxembourg). I’ll reproduce a few of his drawings here during the days of the World Cup — just enjoy the drawings, their wry humor, savviness, melancholia & wistfulness, it could save you many hours wasted in front of a t.v. screen.

  1. thank You so much for sharing Roger Manderscheid’s soccer players. Searching for them, in a world cup mood, I found an obituary: Roger died on June 1. “Adios, caro amigo!”
