This gorgeous, clothbound, nearly 500-page volume presents a generous overview of one of the Futurist movement's most prolific and visionary figures. Fortunato Depero announced his allegiance to the Futurist cause with the manifesto "Futurist Reconstruction of the Universe" (coauthored with Giacomo Balla), and went on to attempt exactly that, traversing all disciplines-painting, sculpture, theatre and set design, poetry, graphic design, textiles and toy design-and infusing them with Futurism's joyous, energetic color palette and embrace of mechanization and speed. Depero was a pioneer in several fields: he created one of the first artist's museums, several classic artist's books (such as his famous "bolted book" of 1927) and the first artist's "factory"-the Casa d'Arte Futurista in Rovereto, Italy, which produced toys, tapestries and furniture in the Futurist style. He was also very successful as a graphic designer, and his 1932 bottle design for Campari Soda is still in production. Surveying over 300 works from the gamut of his vast output, "Futurist Depero" is a wonderful, rich celebration of this fascinating Futurist protagonist. Fortunato Depero (1892-1960) encountered Futurism on a visit to Florence in 1913 and quickly became one of its leading exponents. In 1928 Depero relocated to New York, the city he called the New Babel, where he lived and worked between 1928 and 1930, designing costumes for stage productions, covers for magazines including "The New Yorker" and "Vogue," and opening the Depero Futurist House. He returned to the US in 1947, living in New Milford, Connecticut from March 1948 to October 1949, where he wrote his autobiography, "So I Think, So I Paint." His works were featured prominently in the 2014 Guggenheim exhibition "Italian Futurism" and The Museum of Modern Art's "Inventing Abstractions."

"The iconic Bolted Book 'a mile stone in futurist book production'. Oblong 4to. (24.5 x 32cm) Emblematic collection of futurist designs (many coloured) and text with a total of 123 paper components made up of various materials in different colours including a double folding text leaf, 2 transparent guards, sectional leaves, endpapers and original grey paper boards, held together with 2 large metal nuts and bolts. Text often printed in red and black in a variety of geometrical shapes, with large lettering, vertical pagination, mirrored or oblique designs and symbols. Blank reverse of coloured title page signed by both the author and editor-publisher, J. Azari, in green ink. First edition of this celebrated artist book expressing the essence of futurism. It represents a fusion of Depero's work in painting, sculpture, architecture, theatre, decoration, but above all his experimental graphics and typography for the early publications of the futurist movement. The concept of using 2 bolts and nuts for uniting this striking compilation makes it an extraordinary creative object per se. The editor's novel idea is expressed in the printed caption between the bolts 'rilegatura Dinamo creazione Azari' (refastened by Dinamo created by Azari). The artist himself called it 'Libro Imbullonato' (the 'Bolted Book'). The geometric illustration on the front cover represents a frontispiece in reverse. The book is considered one of 4 fundamental works on Italian futurism."- www.abebooks.de/servlet/Book

The special issue of International Yearbook of Futurism Studies for 2015 will investigate the role of Futurism in the œuvre of a number of Women artists and writers. These include a number of women actively supporting Futurism (e.g. Růžena Zátková, Edyth von Haynau, Olga Rozanova, Eva Kühn), others periodically involved with the movement (e.g. Valentine de Saint Point, Aleksandra Ekster, Mary Swanzy), others again inspired only by certain aspects of the movement (e.g. Natalia Goncharova, Alice Bailly, Giovanna Klien). Several artists operated on the margins of a Futurist inspired aesthetics, but they felt attracted to Futurism because of its support for women artists or because of its innovatory roles in the social and intellectual spheres. Most of the artists covered in Volume 5 (2015) are far from straightforward cases, but exactly because of this they can offer genuinely new insights into a still largely under-researched domain of twentieth-century art and literature. Guiding questions for these investigations are: How did these women come into contact with Futurist ideas? Was it first-hand knowledge (poems, paintings, manifestos etc) or second-hand knowledge (usually newspaper reports or personal conversions with artists who had been in contact with Futurism)? How did the women respond to the (positive or negative) reports? How did this show up in their œuvre? How did it influence their subsequent, often non-Futurist, career?

Gutes Grafikdesign basiert neben eigenen Ideen und Kreativität auf Schlüsselelementen, die durchaus erlernt und trainiert werden können. Hierfür analysieren Steven Heller und Gail Anderson herausragende Arbeiten der weltweit renommiertesten Gestalter mit: Von Michael Bierut, Jan Tschichold, Anton Stankowski, Neville Brody und Jessica Hische über Fons Hickmann, Paul Rand und Stefan Sagmeister bis hin zu Seymour Chwast, Otl Aicher, Paul Sahre und Christopher Niemann – erstklassige Projekte von fünfzig Kreativen werden hinsichtlich Kreativität und Techniken beleuchtet. Wie lassen sich Informationen klarer visualisieren? Wie können Lösungen emotional aufgeladen werden? Schließlich bringen die Autoren Handwerk und Konzeption zusammen, erklären, wie sich die Form auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise um den Content schmiegen kann – humorvoll, typografisch oder aber mit dem Spiel von Perspektiven. Last, but not least widmet sich ein ausführliches Kapitel dem Storytelling. Ein umfassendes Arbeitsbuch also, das gerade Newcomer bestens durch ihre Ausbildung begleiten wird.
