Catalogue Note

first edition. This important book was the first to be published on the writings of Mayakovsky who had recently become highly acclaimed. Kruchenykh places Mayakovsky in context as an urban poet and Rozanova’s lithographic view of a Futurist city scene complements this. The image on the upper cover is a complex portrait of Mayakovsky.
