Velimir Khlebnikov · Crematorium of Common Sense, 40 poems
Texts rendered into English by renowned American translator Paul Schmidt, who produced and directed the 3-volume Collected Works, Poetry and Writings of Velimir Khlebnikov for the Harvard University Press (Dia Art Foundation, 1998) in the US. Some of Caine’s most acccomplished and recherché experimental ‘ferro-concrete style’ typographical designs (featured in Baseline magazine in 2003) were created for this edition. The engravings made for this projected and uncompleted English edition were later used in the book Zaoumni, 11 textes de Velimir Khlebnikov (Ed. Petropolis, 2001). Two 4-page panels here available for sale from the unfinished English book project.
