Arthur Szyk "Ink and Blood" Anti-Fascist Caricatures New-York, 1946. VG CONDITION, CLOTH COVERS, SMALL FOLIO, IN FINE ORIGINAL SLIPCASE.SPINE IS WORN WITH FRAYING AS SEEN SIGNED BY THE ARTIST! Ink & Blood, A book of Drawings by Arthur Szyk. New York: The Heritage Press, 1946.
English "Ink and Blood", 74 anti-fascist caricatures created by Arthur Szyk five reproductions in color, mounted on the book's leaves; all the other illustrations are monochrome prints. Frontispiece by Szyk, portraying himself while drawing a caricature of Hitler, surrounded by caricatures of Goebbels, Himmler, Mussolini, and others. The leading political caricaturist of World War Two, Szyk was a hater of hate, a fact that becomes abundantly clear in this stunning fine art book. Ink & Blood is his personal response to German militarism and 19th century Chancellor Bismarck's emphasis on Blut und Eisen, that is, "Blood & Iron".Frontispiece shows tipped-in self-portrait of Szyk at his desk, creating Nazi caricatures and trashing some in a garbage can. Most of the cartoons featured in book were drawn during the war with the hope that they ultimately would be published in a single volume, giving voice and expression to the ugly face of war.
While the caricatures lampooning the Nazis of Germany as well as the Japanese were published in newspapers and magazines throughout WWII, they did not appear in book format until 1946, the year that Ink & Blood was dedicated as a "Peace Book", not a War Book. The images remind us of the hideousness and horror of war, and the inner face of tyranny; of injustice and intolerance; and how difficult it is to make Peace rather than War.
