Here are two book trailers – first I’ve heard of a book trailer! – for The Lost Art of Heinrich Kley, a two-volume set devoted to the work of the German illustrator. The set, published by Lost Art Books, boasts over 450 drawings and paintings – more than the Dover collection my father gave me (now residing in the Providence Journal’s clip-art archive, if it still exists – plus scholarship assessing Kley and his work. The drawings collected in this set largely avoid replicating illustrations from the Dover set (also two volumes). But check out these book trailers. They are a hoot! One sets Kley to rousing classical music; the other shows Volume Two being flipped through by a disembodied hand. Book trailers – now that’s a concept I can live with!
I posted “Heinrich Kley’s ‘Road Rage’” last Sunday.
About David Brussat
This blog was begun in 2009 as a feature of the Providence Journal, where I was on the editorial board and wrote a weekly column of architecture criticism for three decades. Architecture Here and There fights the style wars for classical architecture and against modern architecture, no holds barred.
History Press asked me to write and in August 2017 published my first book, "Lost Providence." I am now writing my second book.
My freelance writing on architecture and other topics addresses issues of design and culture locally and globally.
I am a member of the board of the New England chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, which bestowed an Arthur Ross Award on me in 2002.
I work from Providence, R.I., where I live with my wife Victoria, my son Billy and our cat Gato.
If you would like to employ my writing and editing to improve your work, please email me at my consultancy, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 401.351.0457.
Testimonial: "Your work is so wonderful - you now enter my mind and write what I
would have written."
- Nikos Salingaros, mathematician at the University of Texas, architectural theorist and author of many books.
