Paperback. Condition: Near fine. Book. 265 x 210 mm, 64 pp. in printed stapled wraps. Front cover image ('Portrait of Andree Dantu by Richard Hardwick: three phases of a Dantu polaroid light mobile') in colour, contents illustrated with both colour and b/w images. Three issues of Image (usually a 'careers' magazine for young graduates) were effectively taken over by important Cambridge academics of the day, all with a specific interest in concrete poetry and kinetic art: Philip Steadman, Stephen Bann and Reg Gadney. The issues of Image dedicated to kinetic and concrete poetry were particularly noteworthy for their commitment to translation and reprinting 'lost' texts, an imaginative use of layout and photography, and enlightening academic essays on their given subjects. This particular issue is entirely dedicated to kinetic art and concrete poetry (as the title suggests), and the editorial (which is idiosyncratically placed in the middle of the publication) reads: 'This issue of IMAGE is largely devoted to Kinetic Art: art, that is, incorporating real movement as opposed to the painted or static illusion of movement.' It is illustrated with a photograph of the editors and contributors - Stephen Bann, Reg Gadney, Frank Popper, Phil Steadman and Citroen - strolling through Paris. The issue features an essay by the concrete poetry specialist Stephen Bann, entitled 'Communication and Structure in Concrete Poetry', which comes with a reprinted letter from Ian Hamilton Finlay to Pierre Garnier, dated September 17th 1963. Translated by Bann are extracts from 'Manifesto for a new poetry, visual and phonic' by the concrete poet Pierre Garnier: 'The word is an element. / The word is a material. / The word is an object.' Also included in this section is a manifesto by Eugen Gomringer, entitled 'from line to consideration', and translated by Mike Weaver. It was 'first printed in augenblick no 2 agis verlag baden-baden 1954'. Works by Augusto de Campos, Ronaldo Azeredo, Decio Pignatari and Haraldo de Campos are also reprinted here. The second academic essay featured is a text by Mike Weaver entitled 'Concrete and Kinetic: the poem as Functional Object', which is illustrated with reproduced typestracts by Dom Sylvester Houedard. Also featured is a text by the editor Philip Steadman, entitled 'Colour Music and the Art of Lumia, and an essay by Reg Gadney entitled 'An Introduction: Kinetic Art', which is illustrated with images of works by Alexander Calder and Alexander Schoffer's Chronus sculptures. There are artist profiles of Frank Malina (by Reg Gadney); Gregoria Vardanega (by Stephen Bann); Martha Boto (by R.G); J-M. Cruxent (by S.B); Andree Dantu (by R.G); Knud Hvidberg and William Soya (by R.G); Nino Calos (by R.G). Condition: near fine (contents fine minor rubbing to covers).
