Alexander Rodchenko: Painting, Drawing, Collage, Design, Photography
by Alexander Rodchenko, Magdalena Dabrowski, Peter Galassi, Various, Leah Dickerman
Book Description: Alexander Rodchenko was the most important and versatile member of the Constructivist movement, the progressive artists who created a new art after the Russian Revolution of 1917. This comprehensive book, rich in illustrations and relying extensively on new research from Russia, accompanied the first major retrospective exhibition in the United States of Rodchenko's work at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1998. In 1921 Rodchenko left behind his innovative work in abstract painting and sculpture, committing himself to applied art in the service of revolutionary ideals. Included in this first full and coherent overview are not only Rodchenko's painting and sculpture but also his diverse experiments and lasting achievements in photocollage, photography, and design of all kinds, from books, posters, magazines, and advertising, to furniture.

El Lissitzky : From Two Quadrants
by El Lissitzky
Book Description: This book is a facsimile of the original Russian first edition, which was published in 1922.
A masterpiece of ideological simplicity it presents El Lissitzky's political-didactic attempt to teach children mathematics using a puzzle in which the red square always overcomes the black. This is a prime example of where modern typography began. Lissitky's playful approach attracted the eye and made the viewer want to read.

As Max Bill commented, typography is a game that leads to communication, and it all began with Lissitzky's tale of two squares. German/Russian
