Jazz Data
1920. N.p.: N.p., n.d.. Some discoloration throughout caused by collage glue; foxing and spots of discoloration to wrappers. Very good condition overall.. Unique artist book. Tall quarto, stapled. Hand-lettered unique artist book with cut paper collages in the style reminiscent of 1920s Constructivism. The anonymous artist wrote a series of four texts, briefly outlining jazz figures William C. Handy, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, and the New Orleans Rhythm Kings. The first three texts alternate with two cut paper collages; the final text incorporates cut paper lettering into the the hand lettered text. Intriguing book, possibly created as a maquette.
Bookseller: Harper's Books, Inc. [United States]
