Now back in print: The first full-color, full-size facsimile of the original 1913 collaboration between the poet Blaise Cendrars and the artist Sonia Delaunay that came to define the modern artist’s book and stands as one of the most beautiful books ever created. Made after an original copy in the collection of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University, the replica makes a modernist icon available to collectors, teachers, and others with an interest in poetry, art, and book making.

Blaise Cendrars was the model of the 20th- century avant-garde man. Sonia Delaunay was one of the most influential painters of the 20th century. Timothy Young is associate curator of modern books and manuscripts at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University.
