F.T. Marinetti, Les mots en liberté futuristes (The Futurist
Cover by the author.
With this fundamental book whose subject was the so-called
"words-in-freedom," F.T. Marinetti summarized about 15 years of
research in the field of the renewal of poetic and literary
language. This book features several typographic compositions spread in
fold-out pages where the author shows his great creativity in typographic
composition by using typefaces of very different style and size, as well
as hand-designed typefaces and calligraphic writings. The results
are of striking, impressive, visual effects that have since influenced
many writers and poets.
