German Expressionist Woodcuts edited by Shane Weller. $15.95. 144 pages, black and white, published by Dover.
Dover puts out a lot of amazing books, but this might be one of the best, at least for my particular tastes. Early 20th century German Expressionism still feels modern, still has the power to move you...and I think the woodcut work done by those involved in the movement is some of the most absolute beautiful art of the period. This book reproduces the highly graphic work in question perfectly, high contrast masterpieces from Beckmann, Feininger, Kirchner, all the legends.
