SEDELNIKOV, NICOLAI. "Literatura mirovoi revolustsii." [Literature of the World Revolution.]
Original maquette for the outer wrappers, title page, and English-language version of the front cover for an avant-garde magazine dated February 1931. Some annotations verso of English cover. Custom red cloth chemise and slipcase.
Provenance: Solomon Telingator, the noted Soviet designer.
Bold Constructivist prototype for a never-realized magazine aimed at revolutionary writers worldwide. Drawing accomplished in India ink and red, blue, and white paint. The wrapper design is not just the front cover, but backstrip, lower cover and front flap as well. The front flap gives the projected contents.
