About This Item

New York: A - D Publishing Co. . First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Comprises Volume VII of A - D, a non - profit, cooperative magazine published by the A - D Publishing Company of New York from 1940-1941. All covers for the individual issues bound in. Stiff pictorial and printed paper wrappers, all bound inside medium blue buckram cloth covers and with gilt lettering over a burgundy leather label affixed neatly to spine. Amongst many wonderful articles and designs there is Moholy-Nagy's illustrated article on Paul Rand, this being the second article on Paul Rand, which takes up most of Vol. VII, No. 3, February - March, 1941. Paul Rand designed the cover for this issue as well. In Volume VII, No. 1, October - November, 1940, there is a full-page review of the famous issue of Architectural Forum, "Design Decade," Number 1930 - 1940, October, 1940, reproducing a full-page illustration of playground equipment to be designed by Isamu Noguchi. Quite stunning. Two bruised but not broken tips to buckram cloth covers, scuffing of tips and edges to an individual volume bound in (and that is itself bound in cloth, not just wraps). Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
