FIRST EDITION, ONE OF 225 COPIES, THIS ONE NUMBER 107. Sports & Divertissements is a striking collaboration combining Satie’s masterly avant-garde compositions with Martin's playful designs. Gillmor characterised these piano pieces as Satie’s ‘finest creative achievement, a superb marriage of style and idea, a crystallization of virtually everything that had preceded it, the purest distillation of an aesthetic ideal toward which he had been groping for a quarter century’. Martin, one of the most distinctive Art Deco illustrators, contributed to Gazette du Bon Ton, Harper's Bazar and many of the most luxurious publications of the age. A trade issue comprising just one plate was also published, with which this edition is sometimes confused. Gillmor, ‘Musico-Poetic Form’, in Canadian Music University Review 8, 30.
