Vladimir Mayakovsky and Alexander Rodchenko


I got myself a little present.

A little booklet Sergeiu Eseninu (To Sergei Esenin) of poetry by Vladimir Mayakovsky. This is the first edition that published in 1926. The booklet was designed by Alexander Rodchenko, and it's also including his photomontages.

Mayakovsky's lyric and angry elegy is written in response to fellow poet and provocateur Sergei Esenin's suicide with Rodchenko's arresting visual contributions.
