LISSITSKY, EL (LAZAR LISSITSKII), illustrator.
BOLSHAKOV, KONSTANTIN. Solntse na izlete. [The Spent Sun]. Moscow: Tsentrifuga, 1916.
8vo (240 x 190 mm). Original grey pictorial wrappers designed by El Lissitzky. Several clean tears to head and foot of the backstrip, corners very lightly rubbed.

LIMITED TO 480 COPIES. A FINE EXAMPLE OF LISSITZKY'S FIRST ABSTRACT BOOK COVER DESIGN. The work very is much in tune with his own ideas, being a collection of poems by Bolshakov published by Tsentrifuga, a group of futurist poets in Moscow. The work is rare at auction; ABPC records just just 5 copies in the last 35 years.
