KITASONO Katue, poet. SABOTEN-TO. Tôkyô, Aoi Shobô, Shôwa 13 [1938] Slender 8vo., one of 170 copies printed. This copy has the signature of Kitasono. Done in combination with the great artist and poet, Onchi Kôshirô, Kitasono has created here the most interesting expression of his "plastic poetry". The binding, the dustcover, the typography, the textual ornaments, all combine as a fluid visual container for Kitasono's brilliant poems. There is not space here to even begin to describe Kitasono's importance to world art and literature. I would refer you to the several works of John Solt, both translations and critical essays, as well as several exhibitions dedicated to Kitasono mounted here and in Europe, as well. Fine condition, complete as issued.
