Item description for Paul Klee: Hand Puppets (Emanating) by Paul Klee...

The story of Paul Klee's hand puppets began with his son Felix's wish to own Kasperl (Punch and Judy) figures like the ones he had seen at a Munich flea market. From 1916 to 1925, a total of fifty figures were created, of which thirty still exist today. In creating the puppets, Klee used a large variety of materials from his studio and around his home: beef bones and electrical sockets, bristle brushes and nut shells. He sewed the garments together from left-over fabric and discarded clothes.
This volume presents the complete ensemble of Klee's puppet theater in text and images, with new photographs and commentary on each of the figures. The original inventory of puppets, as well as the stage settings, has been painstakingly reconstructed and complemented with statements by contemporary witnesses. Several introductory essays provide further biographical and historical context, and Klee's son Felix and his grandson Aljoscha reminisce upon the playful use of the puppets within the family circle.

Reviews - What do customers think about Paul Klee: Hand Puppets (Emanating)?

Paul Klee: Hand Puppets  Jan 11, 2007
This is a great book for more "out there" puppeteers, artists and lovers of Paul Klee's art. His son, Felix, reminisces about his childhood with his artistic Papa, who built whimsical, sometimes scary and political, puppets for his young son's enjoyment. There are many photos of the restored puppets and Felix's stories about them and his father are charming.
Totally amazing unseen puppet photos and info!  Oct 13, 2006
I just got this newly published book and it is simply wonderful. I have a huge puppet book library and having just skimmed through it, I am thrilled to see all photos/puppets are ones I've never seen anywhere else. The puppets of Klee are an absolute inspiration, and I am so glad there is a new book that introduces them to a new generation. The only other book about these puppets is in the range of $500.00 if you can even find one, so this is an absolute steal, and probably will become collectible as well. This is put out by the new Paul Klee museum and text and photos are all fascinating. You must have this for your puppet library!
