It is also a landmark event in the history of modern graphic design. The book was inspired by the new optics, where ideas are given form through printed letters, turning them into pictorial signs, and by words that are seen and not heard, as the avant-gardist El Lissitzky wrote. This three-volume slipcased set consists of a facsimile volume that is faithful in size, colour, weight and paper quality to the original; a translation by Peter France of the original text presented in graphic form by Martha Scotford; and Voices of Revolution, a collection of critical essays edited by Patricia Railing that analyze the character and significance of the original publication and describe the inner workings of the poet's construction in sound complemented by the designer's constructions for the eye....

    Mentre non la finiamo più di discutere,cercando qualche senso riposto,«Dateci forme nuove!»E' il grido delle cose.

    Suggerito personalmente dall'editore: interessante la poesia, il contenuto e la storia della sua grafica.

    Per la voce. Come dice il titolo stesso, queste poesie andrebbero recitate ad alta voce, più e più volte, fino a comprenderle appieno e farle proprie.Edizione molto bella, con le illustrazioni di El Lisitsky che accompagnavano i versi di Majakovskji già all'epoca della pubblicazione, che appaga sia la mente che la vista.Son presenti un paio di refusi, ma si fa volentieri finta di non vederli da tanto è bella la lettura.
