'The Hearts Of Kings' 

Front  cover and spine

     Side Real Press is extremely pleased to be distributing 'The Hearts of Kings' by Hanns Heinz Ewers, a newly released book from AJNA OFFENSIVE in the U.S.

      Originally published as a limited edition in 1922 as 'Die Herzen der Könige' this macabre tale by Ewers (newly translated by Markus Wolff) was complimented by the equally disturbing and wonderful etchings of Stefan Eggeler (1894-1969).  Both were created by artists at the height of their powers. Further information on both Ewers and Eggeler can be found HERE and HERE.

      The original edition (now quite rare) was printed on very poor paper and much trouble has been taken (in collaboration with the Eggeler estate) to render the tonalities of the illustrations accurately.

      Side Real is at present the sole European distributor for this book and it is certainly cheaper to buy from myself than direct from the U.S. due to exorbitant postage costs from there.
The book details are as follows:

Limited Edition of 493 copies
60lb Natures Natural paper, deckle edged.
Ebony and gold marbled end papers.
Black headbands.

    For customers in the U.S. and elsewhere it is more economic to order direct fron Ajna HERE.
