An excellent introduction to German Expressionist Woodcut artists and easily worth the price.

Format: Paperback
Sorry but in contrast to the other reviews on this book I found it woeful. I had wanted some analysis and context to German expressionist woodcuts but there is only a flimsy 2 page written article and the rest of the book is made up of poor reproductions of a woodcuts by various artists. The paper is very poor quality and the page finish is flat. The upside of this book is that it was quite cheap but on the whole I think its a dud.

Lots of really great prints here, but I have several problems with this book.

1) the reproductions are not very good. Yes, the prints are just black and white, and how hard should that be to reproduce, but the paper is really cheap, and the black on it is very flat and the black not as black as it should be. (The ones on the shiny cover look fabulous.)

2) While I didn't expect any explanatory text, I did want to know the sizes of the prints. Some of them looked like they were very small, and blown up way bigger than the original, based on what the marks look like, and some could have been much larger and vastly reduced, and it really seems like that's information that could easily have been put on each page, along with the artist and title of the work.

3) There didn't seem to be much of a criteria for selection. Some artists were represented by only one print, and others by over a dozen, and it seemed to be more like what they had available to use rather than any kind of standard. One artist was represented by a large numbers of very simple faces (that seemed to me like were really small prints blown up), where they're all pretty much doing the same thing, which looked to me like "filling up the pages", and then there were other artists with only one or two that I would very much have liked to seen more of. I could understand a selection process of representing each artist by three or four prints, or by offering a selection of prints representative of an artist's work where the more print-prolific artists had more prints than the less print-prolific artists, but it seemed more like "Oh, we have available a lot from this guy, so we'll put them all in, even though they're not very good, and we only have a few available for this guy....

The kindle book is incomplete. Images are very small and don't come all images that are included on the print book.

It's true that this collection doesn't offer in-depth analysis of its subject -- but quite frankly, the art more than speaks for itself, as it was meant to, in all its stark, angular power. This is the way to be introduced to the emotionally intense, often anguished world of German Expressionism, via direct impact & experience of the images themselves. The deeply-gouged shadows are thick & tangible, like solid blocks of dread & remorse imprinted on the page; the distorted faces & bodies scream volumes, though not a single word is present. Volumes of excellent analysis are available elsewhere -- but this is the place to start, before words, before intellect -- through unfiltered feeling that grips the viewer with clutching, desperate hands. Highly recommended!

For someone starting out with woodcuts, this is a truly inspirational book. Has the feel of the original prints. Few words, excellent images. Endlessly fascinating.

More prints than I realized were done in that period. A good source book for print makers, drawings and glass engravings.
