Svet, ktery voni (The Fragrant World)
Prague: Odeon 1930 - Octavo, wrappers, 243pp. Part 2 of the “Of Humor, Clowns and Dadaists” that completes the series. This volume is comprised of essays that appeared in various journals, including the surrealist once-off Zverokruh. This second installment is noteworthy for its marked departure in design from the Devetsil elements of making up the first volume. Here the typography and book design is reduced to a strong constructivist approach throughout, with a strict, businesslike presentation, all subjugated to the text. These essays were written from 1928 to 1930 and the book released in May 1931 despite the publisher’s date of 1930; the last essay is dated February of that year. Includes 1/2-tone reproductions of works by de Chirico, Man Ray, Josef Sima, Arp, Schwitters, Klee et al. The paper thin cover worn, rear cover spots. No copies of this first edition found in North American libraries. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
