Soviet Cinema

Moscow: VOKS, 1935. First Edition. Unusually well-preserved copy of this landmark of Soviet book design, featuring copious examples of the revolutionary photomontage work of Rodchenko and Stepanova. The two extremely fragile inserted design elements – a die-cut, folded plate bearing Lenin's portrait on a movie screen, and a clear celluloid sheet with the printed silhouette of Stalin are rarely found intact (if at all); in this copy both are present and complete, in excellent condition. Small quarto (27cm). Leatherette-backed pictorial paper-covered boards; [1-24], 25-306, [20]pp. Mild external wear; slight lean to text block; still a tight, Very Good or better copy, with both pictorial inserts present and in good condition (bit of wrinkling to the fragile celluloid insert bearing Stalin's silhouette portrait).

Price: $1,500.00
