[2] 24 pp., no images, includes essay "In memoriam Luce Marinetti" by professor, writer, and former curator, Vincent Giroud, and Selective Bibliography. Beautifully produced small press volume focusing on how book design was impacted by the early 20th-century Italian art movement, Futurism, and its founder, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti (1876-1944). From the publisher (quoting Vincent Giroud, from Marinetti's Metal Book): "Futurism was also a revolution of the book, and there rests, in fact, one of its greatest artistic legacies. This revolution, as in many other -isms of the twentieth-century, began as a revolution of the word, an opening up of language to all kinds of hitherto unexplored possibilities. But Futurism was much more than a literary movement: as much as in the writing of the book and its contents, Futurist poets and artists were interested in its making its design, typography, printing, and final appearance." One of 500 printed. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
