El Lissitzky (1890-1941)

El Lissitzky (1890-1941) created fascinating book designs during his lifetime, and worked with Chagall and Malevich. The Getty Museum has a fine online exhibit with lots of images of his work, including my favourite, his design for the book “For the Voice,” poems by Vladimir Mayakovsky, who was another fascinating individual. Try to track down his poem, “A Cloud in Trousers.”
