This book presents over 250 of the finest masterpieces in the Metropolitan's collection, drawn from more than three million works in eighteen different curatorial departments.

Each reproduction is accompanied by a text that includes pertinent information about the work." Over 300 illustrations in full color.

Bury, Stephen
Breaking the Rules: The Printed Face of the European Avant Garde 1900-1937
London, The British Library, 2007. First Edition. Hardcover. Size: 8vo 8" - 9" tall. A superior copy inside and out, being a sterling condition hardcover copy, with unbruised tips, tight binding, and clean internals, showing only very slight shelf- and edge-wear; not ex-library, with neither underlining nor highlighting anywhere. Bound in bright red cloth and with sharp and distinct white and black lettering to spine. Bright and shiny dust jacket, paper-backed, illustrated, showing only very minor wear, protected by a plastic coat, dust jacket not being price-clipped. Gift-quality condition inside and out. Over 100 illustrations in black-and-white and full-color of art works printed on posters, in newspapers and magazines, journals and art shows. The extensive publisher's blurb has it that, "Between 1900 and 1937 the avant-garde consisted of a series of overlapping movements, such as Cubism, Expressionism, Futurism, Dadaism, Constructivism and Surrealism. Because of its very nature, the avant garde was denied traditional modes of communication and exhibition, so participants became adept at finding alternative outlets, publishing their own manifestos, poetry, magazines and books, and creating new genres, such as the artist's book and the photo-book. These frequently employed innovative design and typography, still influential today. Such groups were often synonymous with specific magazines and this period was the last one in which the printed format was the primary mode for communicating information; film and broadcasting were ready to take over. This book focuses on the printed work of avant-garde participants, demonstrating its importance to the various groups and the way in which printed words helped to disseminate information and ideas internationally. In addition, around 30 cities of particular importance to the avant garde are featured, and their artists and contributions are described in depth.The book contains around 100 illustrations in both colour and black-and-white of the range of printed work, giving a unique insight into a little-studied aspect of the avant garde."
