Vision in Motion. L. Moholy-Nagy. Paul Theobald and Company, Chicago, 1947. Second printing (same year as first). Quarto. Original cloth. 371 pp.
Few, if any, avant-garde artists in the twentieth century, were as multi-talented and influential as Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. In this book he summarizes his aesthetic theories in relation to photography, painting, typography, stage sets, constructions, etc. Heavily illustrated throughout with halftones. Published a year after his death from leukemia. Early editions have become increasingly uncommon.
A near fine copy save for some faint cover soiling from handling and wear to the very tips of corners. Name and address of former owner written in the upper corner of the front and rear pastedown and name written on the rear endpaper.
