The Isms of Art 1914–1924 Reprint 19901914–1924, Reprint 1990
Edited by Hans Arp and El Lissitzky
This surprising collection of “isms” ranks among the most important publications on avant-garde art in the 1920s. Hans Arp and El Lissitzky took a refreshing, frankly opinionated inventory of artistic attitudes and movements from 1914 to 1924. Lissitzky’s exuberant design of the book epitomizes the style of the times.

ABCContributions on Building – a magazine
Edited by Hans Schmidt, Mart Stam, El Lissitzky and Emil Roth
This important Swiss contribution (1924–1928) to the history of the avant-garde took a radical, volatile, and entertaining stand on current developments in architecture and construction. Poetry by Majakovsky was printed alongside scientific articles on technical innovations. ABC thrived on provocative contradictions!

Vesc’ Objet Gegenstand
Edited by El Lissitzky and Ilja Ehrenburg, Berlin, 1922
Although it lasted for only two issues, March/ April and May, 1922, and was written largely in Russian, “Vesc’” exercised an enormous influence on other contem-porary periodicals. With the revival of interest in the Russian avant-garde, the magazine – or rather El Lissitzky’s cover design – has attracted renewed attention. Now, for the first time, the extraordinary contents of this short-lived magazine are made accessible in annotated translations and summaries.
25 x 34 cm, boxed. No. 1/2 and 3. Separate commentary, 144 pages, b+w illustrations
