    The first book to publish the entirety of Franz Kafka’s graphic output, including more than 100 newly discovered drawings.

    In 2019, an astounding revelation was made: a private collection containing hundreds of drawings by renowned writer Franz Kafka (1883–1924) was discovered after being hidden away for many years. While only a handful of Kafka's drawings were previously known, these newfound works showcase his "double talent" as described by his literary executor Max Brod. Combining realistic and fantastical elements with a touch of the grotesque and uncanny, these irresistible and intriguing figures offer a deeper insight into the multifaceted nature of this iconic modernist author.
     
    Explore Kafka's full career through his drawings, with a particular focus on the work he produced during his university years between 1901 and 1907. Among the newly discovered materials are an entire booklet and dozens of loose sheets, all compiled in a complete catalogue raisonné of over 240 vibrant illustrations. This lavish volume, featuring essays by Andreas Kilcher and Judith Butler, offers essential insight into Kafka's art and its significance within his larger body of work, now available in English for the first time.
