Crazy People

Crazy People children’s card game illustrated by painter, caricaturist and graphic artist Walter Trier (1890–1951), published by the International Craftmen’s Centre, c.1950. Each figure is cut into 3 parts - head, torso and legs - which can be interchanged and made into amusing figures. Trier’s Crazy People pictures were also published as folding picture books

Trier provided the front cover design for every issue of Lilliput, a British monthly magazine of art, photography, humor and fiction, from its start until 1949. He has remained known until today mainly for his colourful children's book illustrations.
