Exemplaire n°1 sur parchemin
dans sa pochette peinte à l'époque par Sonia Delaunay
Post Lot Text
Copy n° 1 of one of the finest artists' books of the 20th century, one of the few copies known on vellum (less than 150 were printed, less than 8 on vellum), extremely rare in the original leather wrapper painted by Sonia Delaunay, signed by Blaise Cendrars with his right hand (which he lost in the Champagne offensive of September 1915). Author and artist called their creation the first "simultaneous" book, which synchronizes colour forms with words.
