(Contributions on Building – A Magazine)

Edited by Hans Schmidt, Mart Stam, El Lissitzky and Emil Roth
This important Swiss contribution (1924–1928) to the history of the avant-garde took a radical, volatile, and entertaining stand on current developments in architecture and construction. Poetry by Majakovsky was printed alongside scientific articles on technical innovations. ABC thrived on provocative contradictions! 26 x 36 cm, boxed. Reprint ABC, First Series: 1–6, Second Series: 1–4, Separate commentary, 55 pages
