Summary "This book focuses on the printed work of avant-garde participants, demonstrating its importance to the various groups and the way in which printed works 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."--BOOK JACKET.
