Bulgarian Modernism. Books and Magazines 1919-1934. Highlights from a Private German Collection. Edited by Domenico Jacono in collaboration with Irena Stoimenov-Hütter and Edo Zierotin.

Wien: Jacono 2013.. 4°. 64 pp. Original publisher’s hardcover with transparent dust wrappers. ""...excellently designed and reliably documented..."" (Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 15th April 2014. - One of 300 copies, numbered by hand by the editor in mint condition. - Artists and poets from Central and Eastern Europe, like Tristan Tzara and El Lissitzky, were a driving force behind the booming modernist arts and literature movement during the first decades of the 20th century. Correspondingly strong avant-garde movements with a fervent publishing activity were able to become established in their homelands of Russia and Romania, as well as in their neighbouring countries, e.g. Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Yugoslavia. This eastern modernist orbit is well explored by scholars and markets alike. But who is Geo Milev? What is Plamak? For the first time a comprehensive catalogue explores the surprisingly rich fields of the short- lived modernist book and magazine production in Bulgaria. The protagonists were persecuted and killed, their works of art banned, pulped and destroyed. What survived is rare and sought after. More than 50 unique items from a German private collection are presented in this volume, extensively described in the English language and profusely illustrated throughout. Furthermore, this indispensable reference work contains introductions by two experts in Bulgarian art and literary history, a chronology of events, bio-bibliographical accounts, a list of reference works and an index of names. - This exclusive edition is limited to 333 numbered stamped copies, out of which are 3 author's copies not for sale with a reproduction of a colour-linocut by Sirak Skitnik and bound in leather (nos. I-III), a preferential 30 copies with this very supplement and signed by the editors (nos. IV-XXXIII) and 300 normal copies (nos. 34-333).
