The Man. The Myth. The Brand. – exhibition catalogue
This exhibition catalogue looks at the life of Johann von Schadowitz (1624–1704), who was born in the town of Žumberak near Zagreb County and served under four Saxon prince-electors as the Colonel of the Croatian Electoral Guard (Kürfürstliche Kroatengarde). The book shines the spotlight on the life of the historical figure behind the myth of KRABAT. Its content extends across his roles as an officer, Sorbian magician and marketing product.
