Sonia Delaunay might just be the greatest artist with the least amount of recognition. An early pioneer of abstraction and avant garde modernism, Maison Sonia Delaunay is a vital monograph on the artist's work in fashion, textile, and interior design. This work allowed her to thrive as a working artist--she owned a Boutique Simultané in the 1920s which helped define the cutting edge of cosmopolitanism--and led to the first retrospective of a living female artist at the Louvre. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood

The growing reputation of Leonora Carrington since the reprint of her Selected Stories in 2017 has been a delight. This book on her paintings of the Major Arcana is not only a gorgeous volume on an unknown aspect of her oeuvre but is also the only title currently in print dedicated to her remarkable visual art--a mysterious, feminine surrealism now held in major museums like MOMA. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood

Published: World Poetry Books - September 15th, 2022

The Italian poet and painter Ardengo Soffici was of that first generation of the European avant-garde, beating out the whole Anglo-American lot. His work shares many features of his contemporary countrymen the Futurists like F.T. Marinetti, but is ultimately more reminiscent of the collage pioneered by his Cubist friends Picasso and Braque. BÏF§ZF+18 Simultaneities and Lyric Chemisms is a remarkable book of verse written between 1913 and 1915, the best of which stands with Apollinaire’s cityscapes of modern life–both the first section of free verse and prose poetry and the second of concrete, calligramic poems. Wild transitions and disjunctions anticipate The Waste Land, and yet poems like the remarkable “Rainbow” display an optimism that would mostly disappear from the avant garde after World War One. A real welcome rescue of a forgotten poet by the translator Olivia E. Sears. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood

Oxford Professor Emma Smith follows up her refreshing and brilliant This Is Shakespeare with Portable Magic an exceptional look at the “bookhood” or “bookishness” of books–the codex as a form. From a novel read of how Gutenberg is used as a misleading narrative of European exceptionalism to the self-posed photograph of Marilyn Monroe with Ulysses (reading Molly’s soliloquy no less) both symbols of transgressive sexuality to anthropodermic books bound in human skin (she’s just brilliant on that troubling volume of Phyllis Wheatley’s poetry–binding the book of a pioneering African-American to flesh), Smith is invariably engaging and stimulating. Unfortunately, the embossed cover and spine is cheaply made and rubs away with handling, sadly ironic for this book in particular. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
