URSS en Construction, White Russia Number
1933. TROSHIN, N.S. URSS en Construction. White Russia Number (1933 # 4). Folio, bound in original wrappers. Moscow: Editions d'Etat des Beaux-Arts, 1933. |~||~||~||~| A fine copy of one of many monographic issues of this landmark periodical, devoted to all aspects of wood in the Soviet Union. As Martin Parr says "from 1930-1940 URSS en Construction employed the best Soviet photo-journalists and graphic designers. Amongst the photographers were Max Alpert, Arkadi Shaikhet, Georgi Zeima, Boris Ignatovich, Semen Fridland and Georgi Shaikhet. Designers included Nikolai Troshin, El Lissitzky, Sophie Kueppers, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova. All the visual strategies of the propaganda photobooks, designed by Lissitzky, Rodchenko and others -- the elaborate photomontages, innovative photography, fold-out pages, transparent overlays and so on -- were developed in URSS en Construction, one of the most beautifully produced magazines of the twentieth century." It was published in Russian, French, English and German. This is the French version. Minor waterstains on the first few leaves, but overall in fine condition. Parr and Badger, The Photobook I, 148-149.
