    About this Item: London Magazine Editions (Alan Ross), London. Condition: Very Good +. Book. 185 x 185 mm, 195 pp. Hard cover. Published by Alan Ross/ London Magazine Editions. Designed and printed by Shenval Press. Printed black and invariably orange on white stock. The first ever international anthology of concrete poetry. Compiled by the movement's foremost critic, this was the first anthology of Concrete Poetry to be published in Britain, and can thereby be seen as the catalyst that spawned an interest in the art form, and particularly its previously unheard of South American practitioners, such as Decio Pignatari and Haraldo de Campos. Comes with a substantial introduction by Bann, which reads: 'We would do well to apply to Concrete Poetry the criteria which are all too readily waived in poetic criticism, and to ask, not whether the abandonment of discursive speech qualifies it to be classed as poetry or painting, but under what terms and according to what inherent principles it may be classed as Art'; as well as works by British, European, South American and American artists, such as: Eugen Gomringer, Hansjorg Mayer, Ernst Jandl, Decio Pignatari, Haraldo de Campos, Augusto de Campos, Pedro Xisto, Mathias Goeritz, Pierre Garnier, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Dom Sylvester Houedard, John Furnival, Stephen Bann, Edwin Morgan, Emmett Williams, Robert Lax et al. Also features short biographies and publication information for each of the featured concrete poets. Condition: the transluscent dust jacket with text printed in orange is unusually intact, but has sections missing from the spine and edges, closed tears, ruffles, etc. Toning to dust jacket at edges and spine. Neat ownership signature and date '1968' on the first blank inner page. Light toning to the edges of the pages, some handling marks. It is unusual to find this anthology with the very fragile dust jacket surviving. Overall dust jacket Good only, book Very Good+. Seller Inventory # 12846

    About this Item: Kingsland Prospect Press Ltd., London, 1964. Paperback. Condition: 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 debvoted 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). Seller Inventory # 001218
