Preface by Marc Scheps. Edited by Nira Feldman. Translated from the Hebrew by Ahuvia Kahane. Lilien is very poorly known in the United States despite his great stature as a Jewish artist. Lilien was close to Herzl and created the image of Herzl leaning on the balcony so well known from Israeli postage and other places. He was the first artist in the main stream to introduce Jewish looking types into his illustrations. This collections highlights the collection of photographs of Jerusalem and other holy land locations that Lilien took in preparation for his series. "Die Bücher des Bibel." This aspect of his working style was almost unknown until these photos were released from the Jerusalem Schocken archives. One of two publications on Lilien that have ever been published in English. This, the first in 80 years.
