Vision in Motion. L. Moholy-Nagy. Paul Theobald and Company, Chicago, 1947. First edition. Quarto. Original cloth. 371 pp.
Few, if any, avant-garde artists in the twentieth century, were as multi-talented and influential as 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, this first edition is relatively uncommon.
A very good copy: cloth lightly time-soiled and mildly sunned on spine and along top and side edge of front cover; minor bump to tip of outer front corner of cover; name of former owner written neatly in ink on front pastedown.
