STORY WITHOUT WORDS 60 WOODCUTS BY FRANS MASEREEL INTRODUCTION BY MAX BROD KURT WOLFF VERLAG / MÜNCHEN 1.-5. Thousand Printed in 1927 by the Bibliographisches Institut in Leipzig / cover drawing by Emil Preetorius / Printed in Germany / Copyright 1927 by Kurt Wolff Verlag A. G., Munich INTRODUCTION The story of a particularly brittle and angry girl was teased by Masereel, a fake cat, as this pretty, clean, but disreputable animal repeatedly shows symbolically in the sequence of images.

GESCHICHTE OHNE WORTE 60 HOLZSCHNITTE VON FRANS MASEREEL EINLEITUNG VON MAX BROD KURT WOLFF VERLAG / MÜNCHEN 1.-5. Tausend Gedruckt im Jahre 1927 vom Bibliographischen Institut in Leipzig / Einbandzeichnung von Emil Preetorius / Printed in Germany / Copyright 1927 by Kurt Wolff Verlag A. G., München EINLEITUNG Die Geschichte eines besonders spröden und bösen Mädchens hat uns Masereel hier gestichelt, einer falschen Katze, wie sich denn auch dieses hübsche, saubere, aber verrufene Tier wiederholt symbolisch in der Bildfolge zeigt.

2020 Preface The Masereel Group is devoted to spreading the public domain works of this great artist. The text was first acquired and then scanned. Then it was cropped, rotated, balanced, contrasted, saturated, despeckled, noise-reductioned, and some manually touched up. This was followed by OCR scanning, manual proofreading, and translating into English. This book is in the public domain in the United States (because it was published before 1925), but it is not public domain in Europe (because its author died in 1972). But the Masereel Group is based in the United States, so everything within here is released under the Public Domain, and all content that is not allowed to be licensed under the Public Domain is released under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) 3.0 License.
