The drawings of Heinrich Kley, one of the greatest modern cartoonists and satirists, combine savage humour and brilliant draughtsmanship, reflecting the growing tensions of the 20th century in caustic, iconoclastic images. Here is the first unabridged and unaltered republication of Skizzenbuch I and Skizzenbuch II 1910. Two books bound as one, with 200 illustrations.
His satirical wit encompasses snails in circus rings, an octopus being cured by Doctors in frock coats underwater, centaurs helping with removals, the Devil appalled by industrial chimneys, a human accordion and many more fantastic and surreal scenes. Illustrations:
