RARE INSCRIBED COLLECTION OF POETRY by the famous Russian Futurist poet. Kruchenykh invented his own language, the transrational zaum formed from the Russian words for "beyond the mind." He was perhaps the most radical of avant-garde poets of his generation. He made remarkable books with his wife Olga Rozanova and other important Russian painters. He played with not only the sense but the look of his texts with extraordinary results.
