The most complete collection of primary material on Russian Futurism before the Revolution ever made available in the original or in republished form.
Though it was clear that the experiments in language and the visual arts pioneered by the Russian Futurists could offer a rich field of study to scholars of early twentieth century Russian art and literature, the rarity of the original works made serious research extremely difficult. Publication of this microfiche collection of poetry, manifestoes, journals and miscellanies from the period 1910-1916 allows a more detailed evaluation of avant-garde writers and artists in the formative years of Russian Futurism than has ever been possible before.
The majority of these 53 titles were reproduced from copies in two large private collections in England and France some of which are now in The British Library. Most of the others are from copies in other public and private collections in England and the United States.
