Fritz Kredel (February 8, 1900- June 12, 1973) was a German graphic designer who was born in Michelstadt, but later emigrated to America. In his early years, he studied under Rudolf Koch at Offenbach School of Design, and developed skills in woodcuts. After Koch died in 1934, Kredel moved to Frankfurt, but in 1936 he fled Germany (for political reasons relating to his Jewish ancestry) with help from Melbert Cary.
He produced illustrations for over 400 books. Many of his originals are now housed at the library at Yale University.
