Book Description 1991. KUPER, Yuri. My Sister--Life. By Boris Pasternak. Illustrated with 6 etchings by Kuper. Translated by Mark Rudman. Large folio, bound in quarter grey morocco over hand-made paper boards, in slipcase. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1991. Limited Edition of 250 copies, although according to the Publisher, fewer than 200 copies were actually printed. Signed on the colophon by Kuper. Printed at the Wild Carrot Letterpress on handmade paper containing scraps of Russian newspaper clippings. " Kuper has exhibited at galleries in Europe and the US, and his work is part of the permanent collections of MOMA, Moscow Museum of Fine Arts and Fonds National d'Art Contemporain in Paris Kuper's work recalls the Russian Constructivists' radical, dynamic, geometric abstractions in his use of strong diagonals and primarily geometric forms. This is evident in his images for "My Sister - Life" where we find a cluster of matches scattered randomly from their box, a cup and saucer with its spoon resting partially on the table, or a pen cutting boldly across the pictorial space. As new. Bookseller Inventory # 144737

Book Description The Limited Editions Club (1991), [New York], 1991. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Kuper, Yuri (illustrator). Limited Edition. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. 89 p. Limited edition of 250, this no. 65, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Boris Pasternak (1890-1960) is perhaps best known in the English-speaking world for his novel, Doctor Zhivago - it was smuggled out of the USSR and published in Milan in 1957, earning Pasternak the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1958. This work, My Sister, Life, was his first published collection of poems and is considered one of the most influential collections ever published in the Russian language. Controversial when it was first published, five years after the October Revolution of 1917, the revolutionary spirit pervades the poems - not in the political sense but in the spirit of beginning again. The artist, Yuri Kuper (b. 1940), has worked in several mediums. His work for My Sister-Life recalls the Russian Constructivists' radical, dynamic, geometric abstractions in his use of strong diagonals and primarily geometric forms. Kuper has exhibited at galleries in Europe and the United States, and his work forms part of the collections of the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), the Moscow Museum of Fine Arts, and the Fonds National d'Art Contemporain in Paris (N.B., above info from Wiki and the LEC newsletter). ***DESCRIPTION: Half-bound with a grey Nigerian oasis goatskin spine and fore-edges, author's name in Cyrillic embossed in black on the spine, the boards covered in hand-made paper made by cutting Russian newspapers into minute pieces which were then incorporated with the rags and cotton pulp, with individual Cyrillic letters floated into the mixture in order to complete the process; fore- and bottom edges uncut, endpapers and text pages of the same hand-made paper as that covering the boards, six full-page, tissue-guarded etchings by Yuri Kuper bound in throughout the text; type Monotype Scotch Roman, handmade paper as referred to above, elephant folio size (approximately 19" tall), pagination: (i-iv), (1)-81, blank (82), colophon (83); limited edition of 250 copies, this no. 65, signed by the artist on the colophon page. Monthly newsletter loosely laid in. Publisher's slipcase covered in grey linen cloth, lined with light grey velveteen. ***CONDITION: Fine, the leather spine and corners are smooth and supple, the colour of the spine deep and true (not sunned), the paper boards not rubbed; with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; two miniscule shallow scrapes to the fore-edge of the back board, else fine. The newsletter is also fine, with no folds, creases or edgewear. The slipcase is fine as well, strong and sturdy, the cloth covering without blemish. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that due to the large size and weight of this volume, additional postage may apply; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

Book Description Limited Editions Club (1991)., [New York]:, 1991. Book Condition: Fine. Yuri Kuper (illustrator). First of this edition. One of 250 numbered copies Illustrated with six original etchings by Yuri Kuper SIGNED by the illustrator on the colophon page, and this copy with each etching signed in pencil by Yuri Kuper -- though not issued as such. One of the smallest limitations of the club. Translated by Mark Rudman. "In Russian poetry, Boris Pasternak's My Sister-Life is the equivalent of The Waste Land, Spring and All, and Harmonium. But it is also accessible to the general reader, and belongs on a slender shelf of great love poems . . . Pasternak is an uncompromisingly complex poetic stylist, and his meticulous attention to structure, etymology, and the phonetic qualities of words makes his poetry a formidable challenge for the translator. Mark Rudman renders Pasternak's poetic masterpiece with verve and intelligence" (from cover of recent Northwestern University edition). Large folio (16 x 23") with gray goatskin spine and treated handmade paper boards using the same paper as the text. Housed in a slipcase of gray linen-rayon. Printed letterpress on paper made by hand to resemble the sort of stock produced in the 1920s in the Soviet Union. Monthly Letter laid in. A beautiful edition printed on handmade paper recycling various Cyrillic printings. Kuper's work is found in the permanent collections of MoMA, Moscow Museum of Fine Arts, Fonds National d'Art Contemporain in Paris, etc. Publishers' newsletter laid in. Fine in a fine slipcase.
