Building the Revolution


This is the catalogue from the Royal Academy exhibition 'Building the Revolution', which I saw at the end of last year (it's closed now, it wasn't open for long). It was a fantastic show, nicely demonstrating the parallels between Constructivist drawings and the exciting architecture of the period (sort of what I wrote my dissertation on). The catalogue too is very nicely done, and at the end there is the postcard that I grabbed, of my favourite (and previously unseen) piece - 'Design for Loudspeaker No. 7' Gustav Klutsis, 1922.

Ha! That's exactly the postcard I bought after seeing that show. Would like to get my hands on the book too...

YES Frances! Excellent taste. It might still be on sale in the RA or in their online shop?
