Paul Klee the author and artist wrote this book between the wars last century. Much of his ouvre was abstract or sureal. His pedagogic sketch book simplifies the mechanics of visual comunication on a two dimensional surface. Tone, weight, movement and perspective are his cues for the chapters in the book. It is a small book but speaks volumes to me. It may seem odd but because I simply copied many of his sketches I understood it and still find it's precepts entirely relevant to my own creations. PS I may be wrong about the publishing dates but not by much. Walter Gropious was principle at the Bauhous when Paul Klee was a master there.

It is a pedagogical sketchbook, quite technological, and it is exactly as it was published in 1968. I would have liked a preface from the publisher to give some background information / to help positioning this book related to the others in Bauhaus and giving it a "perspective". This is the reason I gave it only 4 stars. (In case the reader is not a student but a hobbyist / researcher.)

A great little masterpiece. Puts a lie to the theory that those who can create art teach! Klee was both and we have this little gem so that we can still be taught by him.

This a is a good backup addition to the Klee exhibition catalogue and a helpful demonstration of Klee's ideas for teaching purposes.

Bit of a strange book - very short summary of lines and forms. Love Klee though
