KIRK, Hans. Jorgens Hjul. Unpaginated [8 ff]. Illustrated throughout many pages with photomontage by Arne Ungermann. Small 4to., bound in original illustrated boards, preserved in a new blue cloth folding box. Copenhagen: Mondes Forlag a/s, 1932.
A classic avant-garde children's book, which was almost certainly influenced by the work of such Russian artists as Lebedev, especially with the striking use of photomontages, which are juxtaposed with Ungermann's lithographic illustrations. The work is essentially a potted history of transportation for children, done in such a bold andimaginative way to create a book for adults to delight in as well. A rare book with OCLC listing only 3 copies in the US, at Princeton, Yale and the University of Washington.
