Leningradskiy Izoram. [Leningrad Izoram].
Moskva-Leningrad: OGIZ-IZOGIZ, 1932. In original illustrated photomotage wrappers. In good condition, minor losses on the spine, carefully repaired, cracks on the front cover, wear at the edges. Limited to 4 500 copies.IZORAM (Mass Organization of Komsomol Amateurs Art) appeared in 1925 in Leningrad as the Association of Visual Arts Groups for Young Workers to develop a new, avant-garde language of amateur arts and crafts, as amateurs artists used to imitate academic art. Worker's art groups (izoyadra) were led by professional artists which assured the high quality of the amateur IZOTAM productions. The association was disbanded in 1932 after the formation of the Artists Union. This book (the swan song of IZORAM) was prepared by Hungarian-born art critic and one of the members of October art group Ivan Matsa (1893-1974). The monography illustrated with photo of posters and tribune design for the Labor Day rally at Place Square in Leningrad (1931; right part with swastika symbol). It's interesting that the author compared IZORAM's furniture design to Bauhaus style. OCLC locates four copies of this edition in US: in the Princeton University Library, the Getty Research Institute, the Yale University Library, the Harvard University Library. The Tate Library and Archive has one copy also.
