1964. 1. RUSSIAN. (FAVORSKI, VLADIMIR)5 FAVORSKI BOOKS. Offered here are 5 books illustrated by Vladimir Favorski, the noted (and eccentric) woodcut artist who maintained an active working life that spanned his lifetime (1884-1964). Although Favorski began his work before the Revolution, his fame came from his post Revolutionary work which emphasized the art of the book. Although his style may have changed over the years, his emphasis on uniting the layout, typography and illustration with the text of the book remained the same. The 5 books included here offer a good example of the range of his work. The first 3 books date from the late 1920's and 1930's and Pushkin's Little Tragedies (#4) is one of his last works. One book includes a signed woodcut, one is a signed/limited edition and all are in extremely clean and bright condition. Most importantly is the inclusion of an excellent reference work on Favorski's life and work in English. Each is beautifully illustrated. Sold as a collection 1.Pushkin,A.
