Musician Gifts About Musician Gifts. Or - a pun - are they music gifts about music gifts? Anyway: This page on this homepage, the page with the many gifts, is structured like all websites in the "Johann-Sebastian-Bach-Mission". So you also have the choice here: You can click directly into the shop, then decide on a gift theme and get to know this gift better with one click. Or you can browse - right there in the shop - for exciting gifts, if you don't even know what you want to give away. Then this is an experience similar to exploring the Bach homepage "Bach about Bach". Or else ... You stay here, on this page and have fun reading. Because here it is not short and narrow, but you will learn more.
You are still here and have decided on the alternative: You let us entertain you and you can read on this page what the publisher "Bach 4 You" has to offer in terms of cool gifts. And what we have come up with if there was something that didn't exist in the past, but is an excellent music gift. And ... do you feel like it now? And also time? And also in a good mood? Then now: Have fun reading.
Of course, we want to start here with exactly the work of which the publisher is most proud. It is a biography for children, completely designed by members of this family. Of course, this fact is not enough. Except, all three ... the author, the painter of the illustrations and also I as a publisher do what we brought in up to this biography, also professionally and just out of passion.
After all, it was a long way, about a whole year, before the idea of a biography for children arrived as the first edition in the Flein publishing house with the forwarding agency. And actually it was also about two to three years, because the idea that a biography especially for children would be a fantastic addition to the spectrum of Bach reading had my husband, the author of "Bach über Bach", had it long before. He corresponded with publishers and authors, that is, real writers, but ... somehow everyone he approached had something more important in mind. And so it happened that the illustrator, Petra-Ines Kaune, my husband's sister, and I convinced him: "You can do that. You can write a biography for children yourself. A few weeks later, the first rough version of the work was ready. At the same time the cute watercolours of Petra-Ines Kaune were created and for many months I "take care of the rest". And those were corrections, essentially the layout, commissioning further paintings, quickly setting up a book publishing company, taking care of the typefaces, paper thicknesses and types of printing, finding a good offset printing company, establishing contact and finally having the book printed. Today it is long finished and already inspires the first children. And adults, too. You can now buy it in several variations. For example here very near: in the shop "Bach 4 You".
It's not a real book, but it's a real publication. Namely the colouring book on Johann Sebastian Bach for children. Only a short time ago, the reference to "for children" was somewhat superfluous. But ... times have changed and adults can also join in the painting.
The colouring book also has a long history. When my husband had successfully found out how to expand the circle of people interested in Bach around pupils and young music fans, he had the idea of a next project, because he had not yet thought of the very small future Bach fans with a music present. The Bach biography is certainly not - yet - suitable for an age of 5 years. And so he searched the Internet and also the non-virtual world for artists with whom he could turn this idea of the Bach colouring book into reality for a very small budget. Artists would have finally found each other, but not for a recognition fee. After a few months, the project was "doomed". Then my husband remembered the contact to his cousin Briana Bach-Hertzog, who also painted "Bach in Blau" for the title page of my husband's Bach project. She studied together with fellow students and one option was that students would certainly paint for a more acceptable fee. He asked Briana and she didn't look for long, but offered to paint the scenes herself. So Briana made the drawings out of them, a bilingual mini-biography completed the whole thing and I did what I always do: the rest. Today the colouring book is well received, especially in various Bach institutions in the large Bach locations.
Tin figures on the theme of Bach are an exciting theme. Of course they are part of the publishing programme if your father-in-law is a collector of tin figures.
Peter Bach sr., father of my husband Peter Bach jr., has been collecting tin figures for many years. And he attaches great importance to the fact that he does not collect tin soldiers. And also that his figures are not made of lead. There were tin figures on the theme of Bach even before there was our "Johann Sebastian Bach Mission". Only: We didn't like the flat Bach figures. The fully plastic one, as in the picture above, is different. They ... is perfect. Both as a blank, as experts call it, and painted.
