Il'ia Erenburg (Ilya Ehrenburg)
A vse-taki ona vertitsia
Moscow-Berlin: Gelikon, 1922. Quarto 22.5x16.5 cm., wrappers, 140(2) pp. Cover by Fernand Léger with three line drawings he executed with Jean Charlot, 16 plates hors-text of ½-tone photos, drawings by Tatlin and Rodchenko. "And Yet the World Turns." Il'ia Erenburg's examination of the avant-garde in visual and literary arts as they stood at that time, a celebration of the mechanical age personified in the presence of Charlie Chaplin. Erenburg understood this as a global phenomenon, noting esthetic manifestos underlying painting and architecture, and listing journals that were spearheading new ideas in Europe and the West. This was an interesting summary of these dynamics to the Russian reader, with works by Lissitzky, Rodchenko, Tatlin in Russia, van Doesberg and others in the West, and numerous photos of airplane engineering. Replete with typographical experiments, unusual juxtapositions of image, text and typeface. Twelve institutional holdings in North America recorded by OCLC. Compton 64, MOMA 401. A very nice copy of the trade edition of 500, housed in a custom 1/2-leather box. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
