ONE OF 500 COPIES. One of the great hand-lettered Cubo-Futurist books. The radical poet Kruchenykh was a towering figure in Russian culture prior to the Revolution; and his influence is still being felt in his country's literature. He produced extraordinary books of verse with many Cubo-Futurist painters that challenged the traditional book arts through experimentation with different forms of reproduction and unexpected variations of paper stocks. Rozanova was an important member of Russia's avant-garde at a time when women artists were of equal stature with their male colleagues.
