Silhouette Masterpiece Theatre

Wilhelm Staehle, the creator of the incredibly sarcastic and wildly clever Silhouette Masterpiece Theatre illustrations, is rather a man of mystery. Not much is known about him—besides his love for peculiar silhouettes. If you take a look at the bio page on his website, you will know exactly what I mean! But his work is quite captivating, and speaks for itself. Below you will find just a few of my favorite pieces (including the Specimen Sheet of Type Designers), but his website offers an abundance of cleverness—so check it out! If you love the prints, most of them are available for sale at The Bazaarium online store for $40.
