This is the first full-colour, full-size (79 by 15 inches) facsimile of the original 1913 collaboration between the poet Blaise Cendrars and the artist Sonia Delaunay that came to define the modern artist's book and stands as one of the most beautiful books ever created. Made after an original copy in the collection of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University, the replica makes a modernist icon available to collectors, teachers, and others with an interest in poetry, art, and book making.Blaise Cendrars' narrative about his life-changing journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway is a poem of memory and movement. Sonia Delaunay's designs create a parallel path as the reader slips down the palette while swimming through a river of words. Curator Timothy Young provides a new English translation accompanied by notes.
