En Masse

By Rauch, Hans-Georg

Collier Books -A Division of Macmillan Publishing Co., Inc., New York, 1975. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition, First Printing. 100 Un-numbered Pages with a Rauch drawing on all pages. Many of the drawings are double-paged. Clean unmarked interior illustration pages. Minor wear to cover. AB271. Combining the wit and linear verve of Saul Steinberg, the absorbing phantasm of M. C. Escher, the sexual irreverence of Tomi Ungerer, and the political sting of David Levine, Hans-Georg Rauch plays with the essential malleability of today's man in his meticulously detailed drawings. He explores the marvelous decadence of cathedrals, the emptiness of ceremonies, the awesomeness of skyscrapers. He restages evolution. God creates with knitting needles, Christian miracles Jesus doesn't walk, He skates on water, the discovery of America Columbus sails toward an American twenty-dollar sunset. These 65 black-and-white drawings offer a deft composite of our many private and public faces that will help even the ardent pessimist find a sense of humor and perspective. Hans-Georg Rauch, a young German artist, has been seen in America through his work on the Op-Ed page of the New York Times and in magazines such as Look, Venture, Town and Country, Travel and Leisure, and Harper's. His work is currently on exhibit in selected American galleries. This book, already acclaimed in Europe, was his first to appear in America. Size: 9 1/4" x 13 "
