Voz odlazi Nova lirika, izdan'e Khipnos [The train is leaving New poems, published by Khipnos]
Belgrade: Khipnos, 1923. Octavo (19 × 14 cm). Original decorative wrappers; 18 pp. Signed and inscribed by the author to front wrapper verso. Wrappers expertly restored at upper corner; else about very good. First and only edition of this scarce, controversial volume of "constructivist" poems by Rade Drainac (whose real name was Radojko Jovanovi , 1899-1943), the founding member of the Yugoslav Surrealist group and editor of the Dadaist journal Khipnos, a "magazine for intuitive art" (1922-1923). With a striking constructivist wrapper design incorporating the motif of a train in motion, suggested by a large red square, with a smaller square evoking the raised railway signal, and the words "look out! signal" stacked below. Drainac is considered one of the most original and fascinating voices of Serbian interwar literature; he began writing as a symbolist and developed a highly unconventional, expressly avant-gardistic style around 1922. After 1926, Drainac lived in Paris, where he survived by playing the violin as an accompaniment to silent films, before returning to Serbia shortly before the war. Rear wrapper with an advert of Drainac's Erotikon. All of the author's works are very scarce. KVK, OCLC only show the copies at the British Library and Michigan.
