Before Gunter Grass achieved worldwide fame as a novelist, the future author of The Tin Drum studied sculpture at the art academies of Dusseldorf and Berlin. Over the past 60 years of artistic life, he has created not only novels, poems, stories and plays, but an extensive body of artworks in a diverse array of media. His writings are inconceivable without their visual counterpart for reasons both private and public. As a matter of method, during the slow, intimate process of painting, drawing and modeling, Grass develops the ideas for new novels. After he has finished a book, he moves back to his studio and his drawing table. As a matter of aesthetics, he created the dust jacket illustrations for each of his first editions, which has lent his literary works a distinctive unified style.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

These two volumes make up the catalogue raisonné of German author and Nobel laureate Günter Grass's graphic work. Together, they cover his etchings (begun in 1972) and lithographs (begun in 1975). Featured are Grass's renderings of fish, rats, trees, and mushrooms as well as his self-portraits, some of which have appeared on the dust jackets of the first editions of his writings. As Grass himself says, these artworks are of "the same ink" as his writings; in fact, he sometimes incorporates handwritten texts into his images. Appearing at each volume's end are a chronological biography that includes his writings, a list of exhibitions, and a list of plates. There is also a general explanation in each volume of Grass's etching and lithography techniques, respectively, as well as of the numbering of his prints. While the set offers a comprehensive record of all Grass's etchings and lithographs, it is very specialized and lacks any background or contextualization of these prints in relation to Grass's life or writings. Thus, only a reader with previous knowledge of this writer/artist can fully understand and appreciate this work. Recommended only for museum libraries collecting books on contemporary prints and large academic art libraries also collecting extensively in this area.
