Moscow. Design and most photographs by Alexander Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova. Text in English (in English). State Art Publishers, Moscow, 1939. Unpaged (125 pp.) 10.25 x 8 in./26 x 30.5 cm. Textured cloth boards with raised title. Two tipped-in fold-out plates in rear, as published: "Moscow of the Past" and "Buildings preserved by the Soviet Government for their historical value". Half-tone reproductions.

Soviet propaganda photobook by the renowned team of Alexander Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova published for the 1939 New York World Fair.

Alexander Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova introduced the new relationship between the text and the illustrations into their designs for posters and printed publications....Their revolutionary, new graphic structure -- now a classic of the Russian avant-garde -- introduced Constructivist quests to such comprehensible documents as printed texts and photographs. The large letters, contrasting geometric elements and bold photomontages symbolised the brutal and boisterous aesthetics of the new era."--from the Department of Collections, Pushkin State Art Museum.

Very Good-; with holes in rear endpaper and last page (either from wear of acidity), with tipped-in plates slightly foxed; only slight foxing elsewhere, with Fine-, lightly worn boards.
