5.0 out of 5 stars Totally amazing unseen puppet photos and info! 13 Oct 2006
By S. WATSON - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Paul Klee: Hand Puppets 11 Jan 2007
By Pat Irish - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical context 12 Mar 2009
By Nagagirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you like the work of Klee, this book will show a larger picture of
his life, family and times. The puppets are raw and made with whatever
was near. With a light hand, the political and social events
are added to give a feeling of where these were created in time.

These puppets seem very modern and ancient at once. So glad to have it in
my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 13 Dec 2008
By Damon Rich - Published on Amazon.com
If you are familiar with Klee's museum work, this book will knock your socks off! I was on an art holiday in SoCal, not having yet had a chance to look through the Norton-Simon Museum, and I discovered this book. I had to work at associating Klee's work that I knew with the material in this book. These puppets are insight to the mythology of his family and his ethnic and cultural history. These are raw and sweet. I was quite taken aback. I thought is this the doodle guy who occasionally draws happy faces? Okay. A gross characterization. But these very intimate pieces provide an insight into the personal world of Paul Klee and a sense of play and delight. Hard to believe these were never catalogued as a part of his oeuvre. With a grandmother of 92, with a rich history, I may work, her and I, on a few puppets. Inspiring.

Such a fascinating topic. Nicely done book. I love these private types of work, done out of love and passion, but not revealed to the rest of the world.
