The Lost Art of Heinrich Kley, Volumes One & Two, collect over 450 drawings and paintings from a wide array of sources. Neither volume significantly 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.

Volume One focuses on Kley's ink drawings, and reprints for the first time a substantial selection of his illustration work for children's books and adult genre fiction, a side of Kley's career previously unexplored in other collections. This volume also includes a wide sampling of Kley's cartoons and magazine work, with newly collected examples taken directly from a variety of rare sources such as "Jugend," "Simplicissimus," and the historic "Der Orchideengarten" (the world's first fantasy fiction magazine). In all, more than 300 Kley illustrations and cartoons fill this first volume.

Volume Two also breaks new ground by being the first book to present a large number of Kley's paintings and preparatory drawings, some reproduced directly from the original art. These color works reveal a heretofore rarely glimpsed pool of talent, and expand on the subject matter traditionally associated with the artist by including examples of his landscapes and industrial paintings. This volume's preparatory drawings are culled from the Library of Congress? untapped Kley archive, and show the artist working out concepts for book illustrations, reworking ink drawings into color paintings, and doodling for his own amusement. Approximately 150 drawings, many in color, appear in this volume.

Both volumes represent an important advancement to the English-language scholarship on Heinrich Kley, and the abundance of art within should delight admirers of Kley, new and old alike.

L'autore: Heinrich Kley (1863-1945) was born in Karlshure, Germany, where he eventually studied at the Karlsruhe School of Fine Arts under history painter Ferdinand Keller. He moved to Munich in 1909, where he succeeded in broadening his artistic and financial horizons and in building a body of work that has made a lasting impression to this day on all of those fortunate enough to have seen it.
