Now this will get your blood pumping. The book trailer for The Lost Art of Heinrich Kley, debuting at SPX 2012 from Picture This Press and Lost Art Books. Publisher Joe Procopio has done some seriously painstaking work to restore this book long-out-of-print work and bring it to you in an all new, expanded version. We’re talking labor of love territory:
“The Lost Art of Heinrich Kley,” Volumes One & Two, collect over 450 drawings and paintings from a wide array of sources. Neither volume overlaps with past books on Kley, as nearly none of these drawings have been collected and reprinted since their original publication a century or more ago.
Both volumes also provide groundbreaking scholarship on Kley’s life and work by German art historian Alexander Kunkel—whose recent research is presented in these volumes for the first time in English—along with incisive appreciations by contemporary artists Michael Wm. Kaluta and Jesse Hamm.
