CharlesDellschauHeaderDuring his lifetime, Charles Dellschau had only been known as the grouchy local butcher. That is, before 1969 when art history student, Mary Jane Victor came across his mysterious works. Inside the scrapbooks she discovered a remarkable collection of strange watercolours and collage pieces. More than 2,500 intricate drawings of flying machines alongside cryptic newspaper clippings filled the pages, crudely sewn together with shoelaces and thread.

More info on Dellschau’s strange and thought provoking artwork can be found here.
