Czech Photomontage Book Design

Filmová dramata [Drames de cinéma].

Prague: Ladislav Kuncíř, 1925. Octavo (19.7 × 12.3 cm). Original photomontage wrappers by Karel Teige; 77, [3] pp. About very good.

First and only edition of these works by the French film critic and director, with a striking photomontage cover by Teige. Jindřich Toman notes that "Cover designs made by Teige independently of Mrkvica are in some instances geometrically more disciplined and do not include hand-drawn materials. One characteristic feature is the underlying rectangular structure" (Toman, p. 102). Translated by JANE. Toman 3.3.10. Vloemans 41. As of February 2020, KVK and OCLC show seven copies in North America.
