”The Italian Futurist Fortunato Depero’s 1927 monograph Depero Futurista, also known as The Bolted Book, because it is famously bound by two industrial aluminum bolts, is acknowledged as the first modern-day artist’s book. Filled with typographic experimentation and serving as a showcase for Depero’s art in a variety of media, it is universally recognized as a tour de force of avant-garde book-making.

Designers & Books, in collaboration with the Center for Italian Modern Art in New York, and the Mart, Museum of modern and contemporary art of Trento and Rovereto, Italy (which houses Depero’s archives), will launch a Kickstarter on October 18 to publish a new facsimile edition of this rare and groundbreaking book.” [source] [pdf press release]
