Paul Klee's Hand Puppets now in store!

This book compiles most of the hand puppets Paul Klee (1879-1940) made for his son between 1916 and 1925. Some are directly inspired by his colleagues over at the Bauhaus, or by popular political figures, others are reminiscent of the art styles that influenced him throughout his career. On top of gorgeous photographs, the book contains an introductory essay that "tracks the work's links to other avant-garde puppetry and to Klee's sculptural works, and notes his connections to the theater." To complete your understanding of these gorgeous and imaginatively produced puppets, various commentaries, historical, biographical and personal, are shared throughout this treasure.
