Active at the Bauhaus between 1920 and 1931, teaching in the bookbinding, stained glass and mural-painting workshops, Paul Klee (1879 1940) brought his expressive blend of color and line to the school and, with the second volume in the Bauhausbucher series, beyond its walls. In his legendary Pedagogical Sketchbook, Paul Klee takes a theoretical approach to drawing using geometric shapes and lines.

Evincing a desire to reunite artistic design and craft, and written in a tone that oscillates between the seeming objectivity of the diagram, the rhetoric of science and mathematics, and an abstract, quasi-mystical intuition, Klee s text expresses key aspects of the Bauhaus pedagogy and guiding philosophies. And while Klee s method is deeply personal, in the context of the fundamentally multivocal Bauhaus, his individual approach to abstract form is typical in its idiosyncrasy.

In this book, he presents his own theory about the relationships between line, shape, surface, and color in the visual space. This English edition of Klee's book appears in original design and with separate commentary.
