Reprint of New LEF magazine for 1927 and 1928 years. New Lef (Novyj Lef) objective, as set out in one of its first issues, was to "re-examine the ideology and practices of so-called leftist art, and to abandon individualism to increase art's value for developing communism." Magazine was edited by Mayakovsky along with the playwright, screenplay writer and photographer Sergei Tretyakov. They tried to popularise the idea of "Factography": the idea that new technologies such as photography and film should be utilised by the working class for the production of 'factographic' works. In this it had a great deal of influence on theorists in the West, especially Walter Benjamin and Bertolt Brecht. Includes works by V. Mayakovsky, A. Rodchenko, V. Stepanova, A. Lavinsky, L. Brik, M. Kaufman and others. Published by Wilhelm Fink Verlag. Excellent condition, small scratch, library sticker on the spine of the book.
