Medieval Bamberg

Bamberg is another of those lovely little cities in Bavaria, Germany, with a charming, medieval Aldt Stadt (old city) section still intact. I missed out living there for awhile in the 1990's, when the Army stationed my then-husband to another town. So here is a little tribute to Bamberg. It is also my offering for Three Muses' "printed word" challenge.

  1. What a wonderful tribute-collage! I love the town profile and the old printed text on the background. This could also be seen as a tribute to the art of book printing which was invented in Germany!

    1. Hi Brett, my apologies for taking so long to respond, but I haven't checked the comments in ages. Thanks for your interest in my work! It's fine with me to use the Bamberg piece on your FB page, but please do include a link to Collagitation, and also please use the copyright symbol and my name, Diane Keane.
      Cheers!
