Many times I visited Barbara Beisinghoff in Leipzig with the students from Graphic Art Department, Vilnius Academy of Arts. And always it was very warm meetings and talks, she has wonderful talent to speak with young artists, to explain about art, about artist’s books. All her artist’s books has deep narrative, made very professional and intricately.
