Ernst August KRAHL (1858-1926)

Ernst A. Krahl was an Austrian artist and heraldist and a founding member of the Austrian Ex Libris Society in 1903. He designed many ex libris and not only heraldic influenced by the Art Nouveau style. His heraldic bookplates of which we show two examples are very rich in details and very beautiful.
