ILIN, NIKOLAI, illustrator.
KIRSANOV, SEMEN ISAAKOVICH. Stikhi v stroiu. [Verse in the Combat Line.] Leningrad: OGIZ, 1932.
4to. Constructivist panorama. 4to. Original photomontage wrappers. Overall discoloring, creases and minor wear; front flap reinforced.

RARE SOVIET PROPAGANDA PANORAMA glorifying May Day with a stirring marching song. Ilin's bold Constuctivist experiments with photomontage and type are reminiscent of both Rodchenko's and Telingater's work. Kirsanov worked closely with Mayakovsky and Aseev of LEF in developing his Soviet agitprop poetry.
