Trompe l’oeil featuring a book

A trompe-l'œil featuring a book in Füssen, Germany

I did know Füssen is known for a lot of amazing Trompe-l’œils on the walls of the High Castle (Hohes Schloss). Though I was surprised to see in the streets of Füssen such an impressive Trompe-l’œil featuring a book. In this depiction, the three legs of the city arms are linked to the character traits diligent, honest and helpful (fleissig – ehrlich – hilfsbereit).
