In this book Janecek provides the reader with an enlightening "Introduction" to the basic ideas underlying the practice of visual poetry not only in Russia but in Western Europe as well. He then shows, with ample details and illustrations, the techniques employed by four major Futurist poets-Aleksej Krudenyx, Vasilij Kamenskij, Il'ja Zdanevi6, and Vladimir Majakovskij-as well as by a number of minor, but not less interesting, figures belonging to various avant-garde groups: Anton Lotov, David Burljuk, Igor' Terent'ev, Aleksej Ci6erin, El Lissickij, and others.

In addition to reproductions of more than one hundred pages of texts from the literature of the Russian avant-garde, Janecek's book includes important appendixes-a translation into English of the Resolutions of the Or- thographic Subcommission and admirable translations of selected illustrated figures. The book is a highly useful tool for Slavists and non-Slavists as well. Janecek begins his study by a brief look at historical background from the standpoint of the Russian manuscript, the figure poem, and the art of lubok.

Gerald Janecek describes the experiments in visual, literature conducted from 1900 to 1930, the heyday of the Russian Avant Garde. Focusing on an aspect of Russian literary history that has previously been almost ignored, he shows how Russian writers of this period tried unusual methods to make their texts visually interesting or expressive. The book includes 183 illustrations, most from rare publications and many reproduced for the first time. The author discusses such figures as the Symbolist Andrey Bely, the Futurists Aleksey Kruchonykh, Vasili Kamensky, and Vladimir Mayakovsky, and the post-Futurist Ilya Zdanevich, and their use of devices ranging from unorthodox layouts and florid typography to roughly done lithographed or handmade books.
