Le Spectacle Est Dans La Rue (The Poster Art of A.M. Cassandre)
first editionOriginal wraps
Paris: Draeger Freres, 1936. Original wraps. Very Good. A very solid copy of this lovely 1936 promotional album, showcasing the incomparable poster art of A.M. Cassandre (1901-1968), "which expressed his insights into the role that motion and scale in urban environments played in modern design". Published by Draeger Freres of Paris, the 15 sumptuous, full-page reproductions (4 of which are in lavish, vivid color) have been beautifully executed and seem to pop off the pages. The album is tight and VG in its spiral-bound, stiff cardboard wrappers, with light scuffing to the panels and a small amount of light staining at the front panel's lower-edge. Still though, attractive and very presentable. And internally, sharp as could be, with just a touch of wear to the pastedowns but with no markings of any kind to the plates. Tall quarto, Preface by the formidable Blaise Cendrars.
