Adolf Kussmaul's house
August 24, 2011. It's been so hot and sticky in Kandern this week, so I hung out in the town square last night until it got dark, sketching the Adolf Kussmaul house, with the grape vines full of fruit draped across the front. The square was filled with the voices of people sitting in front of the Italian restaurant at tables, enjoying the subtle evening breezes and something cool to drink. Apparently, Dr. Kussmaul was famous for many things. I read that he was instrumental in studying dyslexia, which he called "word blindness."
