Book Description Lund Humphries, London, original journal, 1964, 1964. Illustrated printed wrappers, 4to, 57 pp, ads. Contents of this issue : "Avant-garde Graphics in Poland between the Two World Wars" by Anatol Stern; "Henryk Berlewi and Mechano-faktura" by Eckhard Neumann; "Sunday Photographers" by Michael Middleton; "Crowns" by Camilla Gray; Advertisements. From the introduction: "Little has so far been published in English on the exciting work produced by avant-garde artists and typographers in Poland during the 'twenties and 'thirties. The article written for this issue of Typographlca by the poet Anatol Stern, one of the pioneers of Formism, provides an important introduction to Polish graphic design of the inter-war years, and on page 21 Eckhard Neumann discusses Henryk Beriewi and his theory of Mechano-faktura. In looking at the illustrations on the followtng pages, especially those of the Futurists, it is important to realise that it was not only the typography which outraged conventional Polish eyes but also the startling phonetic spelling. 'The crown' says Camilla Gray on page 49 'is a very familiar symbol which we seem to be seeing more and more as monarchies grow rarer'. The wrapper shows a few of the many varied forms in which the crown is used in commerce today - and the varied shapes which we recognise as being 'crown-like'." Two library stamps on page 2, otherwise Very Good in Very Good dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-42474
