Andrew Joyce’s recent essay (“On Jews and vampires”) features two notorious anti-Jewish cartoons from the National Socialist periodical “Der Stürmer.” They were drawn by the talented cartoonist Philipp “Fips” Rupprecht, who produced hundreds of such images between 1925 and 1945. Recently, a skilled digital artist named Robert Penman has recovered, restored, and colorized 200 such cartoons. These are compiled in the new book Pan-Judah!, edited by myself (available at www.clemensandblair.com). Below are the colorized versions of two of the cartoons featured in Joyce’s article:
Penman has done a spectacular job; the colorized images are bright and vivid, and virtually leap off the page. We can now view Fips’ cartoons as they have never been seen before. Pan-Judah! is available in three formats: 6 x 9 paperback, 6 x 9 hardcover, and deluxe 8.5 x 11 hard cover coffee-table edition. See the publisher’s website for purchase details.
