Proud Rider, Beautiful Women:
The Picture World of Cookie Molds

This 258-page all-photo book is a fabulous tour of one of the most extensive private collections of antique springerle cookie molds in the world. The photography is gorgeous!

99% of the book is color plates, 1% is German text. You can easily understand the dating without needed to know any German.

Christa Fischer is the owner of the collection. She wrote the book, molded the images and extensively painted the images according to the historical colors and styles of the times. The molds are dated with the help of Leo von Steiglitz M.A. of the Landesmuseum Stuttgart (Alte Schloss Waldbuch).


This is a must-have for anyone fascinated by the history of springerle molds and the beauty of the images. Of all the books we've seen on antique springerle mold collections this is absolutely the best. Buy it now. We have a limited supply.

Beautiful Photos August 6, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Florida  
Although this book has significantly less text than the other Springerle book, an English translation would be nice and helpful.  The pictures of the mold collection are beautifully done.

Stolze Reiter, schoene Damen April 13, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Breinigsville, PA United States  
Color pictures are stunning. I wish I knew German better to really get the most out of the text. Not all of the individual pictures on the molds are show as printed, but a majority are.  The painting work for the prints is very detailed and must require great eyesight and a steady hand.  Book comes in a cellophane sleeve.

Proud Rider-Beautiful Women Book February 15, 2016
Reviewer: Susan from Morgan Hill, CA United States  
The photos of models and castings are just stunning.  So very pleased with this book, I hardly notice that I can only read a few words of the German text.  One of the very best books on cookie boards in my collection.
