Baron Münchhausen is a historical figure – he might not have written down his incredible adventures, »singular travels, campaigns and voyages« himself, but they became a bestseller shortly after their publication both in Germany and England, were soon translated into many other languages and eventually served as the basis for numerous films. For this special Insel-Bücherei edition of Munchausen’s stories, multi-award-winning illustrator Stefanie Harjes has furnished the best stories by the »Baron of Lies« with her unique illustrations.

»Sometimes I believe myself to be lying, and lo and behold! That’s when I encounter – the truth.« Friedrich Nietzsche
