The artist Josef Danilowatz (1877-1845) was responsible for a range of classic Märklin catalogue covers and interior artwork during the 1930s.

Born and educated in Vienna, Danilowatz was a successful cartoonist/illustrator (in Die Muskete) and an excellent portraitist, but his "speciality" was his ability to use his enthusiasm for technology to produce a series of dramatically inspiring images of steam locomotives and railway stations (and the like), which were a perfect match for the illustration needs of the Märklin toy company.


Danilowatz' longer signature is fairly self-explanatory: his abbreviated version,. "JD" looks confusingly like "8D", and is usually followed by a two-digit year with an overline.
