From 1967 to 1972 he then attended the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig Germany. From 1976 on he undertook various print projects for contemporary artists.

  • Transformation No. 37, 1993 by Karl Gerich of Bath - Playing Card Print Sheet
    Located in Meinisberg, CH
    Karl Alexander Gerich (English, 23.4.1956 - 4.1.2016) - Etching - Transformation, No. 37, 1993 - Sheet 41.5 x 29.7 cm - Plate 22.3 x 30.1 cm Worldwide shipping for this object is complimentary - There are no additional charges for handling & delivery. A finished but uncolored sheet from Karl’s masterpiece - The Nursery Rhymes Transformation Playing Cards produced for the E. P. C. S. 10th Anniversary in 1993. This sheet of nine transformation playing card designs whose designs are based on nursery rhymes and in the suit of diamonds (2-9). Sheet is in good condition and suitable to be framed. Karl was a brilliant playing card maker and certainly one of the most genius artist-craftsmen I had the pleasure to learn about his work and know. He could do it all: Come up with the tale, weave meaning(s) into it, fill it with spirited characters of his liking, draw it, etch it, print it, colour it and handcraft the inks, paper and card into wondersome packs of playing cards, each of them living in their own, most exquisitely crafted boxes. Every pack a magical marvel, filled with the spirit of this genius card maker … All this he did using his Adana printing press, very simple hand tools and great skill. When Karl closed down his studio in St.Peter’s Terrace in Bath, England and moved to Poplar Close, he sold off work for which he felt he no longer wanted to be the custodian. So a number of prints reached the market then. Printed sheets by Karl Gerich...
