Very good; lamination on dust jacket beginning to lift in places with a couple of short tears, some yellowing, mainly to spine, price-clipped; evidence of previous owner's name and pricing to front free endpaper, foxing to page edges.

An important study of the work of Russian suprematist El Lissitzky, compiled by his widow. The book contains a biography, largely drawn from his letters, illustrations of his work as a painter, illustrator, typographer, designer, photographer and architect, and an anthology of his own writings and accounts by his contemporaries and critics.
