La matrice espressiva nel livre d’artiste di Iliazd
Due to the involvement of Iliazd in a range of major artistic movements, from Russian Futurism to Dada during its Parisian period, his work may be considered within a range of different study frameworks. These experiences led to an interest in printed art and later to publishing. The ‘architecture’ of the books he produced was influenced by the character of the zaum poetry he practised in his early years. His contribution to the genre of modern artist’s book is unquestionable, although it has not enjoyed the attention of much scholarship. This paper seeks to analyse the expressive devices in Iliazd’s mature work in illustrated books and to trace their origins, showing how they led to the emergence of liberal and original correspondences between writing and visual forms.
