Description
In the first four decades of the 20th century, the avant-garde in Western culture consisted of a series of overlapping movements, including cubism, expressionism, futurism, dadaism, constructivism, and surrealism. Excluded from many traditional modes of communication and exhibition, participants became adept at finding alternative outlets, publishing their own manifestos, poetry, magazines, and books, and creating such genres as the artist's book and the photo-book. With more than 90 color reproductions, this book explores the rapid exchange of ideas through printed matter that marked the avant-garde movement, including such items as the notebooks and corrected proofs of Finnegans Wake and excerpts from an oral history interview with David Gascoyne recalling the surrealist group in 1935 Paris.
