Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marked by bold innovations in graphic design combined with daring experimentation in poetry, Russian avant-garde books are at last receiving the accolades and scholarly attention they merit. This astonishing volume includes a diverse assortment of over 300 of these artist's books by Kazimir Malevich, El Lissitzky, Aleksandr Rodchenko, and Natalia Goncharova, among other well-known members of the Russian avant-garde. Often handmade and hand-printed in limited editions, these works highlight an important gift to The Museum of Modern Art, New York. The more than 600 color illustrations are accompanied by incisive essays, a bibliography, and a checklist of the 1,200 items in the full collection.

Review:

"Rare, handmade and handprinted books illustrated by Aleksandr Rodchenko, Marc Chagall, Kazimir Malevich, Varvara Stepanova, Natalia Gonchorova and other revolution-era luminaries are stunningly reproduced in The Russian Avant-Garde Book: 1910-1934. The volume accompanies a spring 2002 exhibition of the same name at New York's Museum of Modern Art." Publishers Weekly
