Shin Rosia Gakan/ Silvuet Novoi Rossii.

OZE, Keishi. Shin Rosia Gakan/Siluet Novoi Rossii. [8], 155, [5] pp., profusely illustrated with photographs and reproduced drawings throughout. 8vo, 185 x 170 mm. bound in original illustrated boards and matching illustrated cardboard slipcase. Preserved in a dark grey folding box. Tokyo: ARS, Shôwa 5 [1930].

"Views of the New Russia" is an exploration of the new Soviet state. The binding and book design by Onchi is remarkable, capturing the constructivist aesthetic very effectively. Although Onchi later became known as an important print-maker and photographer, he initially supported himself as a book designer. A compelling symbiosis of Japanese book design and Russian constructivism.

Very good in a slightly rubbed and soiled decorated slipcase.
