Catalogue Note

a fine copy. This was one of the last of the hand-lettered Cubo-Futurist books. The powerful images by Goncharova range from Neo-Primitivism to Futurism in style, and the artist makes full use of the contrast of dark and light. The lyrical poems evoke the city as an entity and the synergy of the verse and images adds to the sense of this city as exciting, alive, full of movement and emotion.
