The British Library holds an extensive collection of Russian avant-garde books of the early twentieth century and an expanding collection of Russian artists' books from the late 1960s to the present. Although all are included in the Library's catalogues these often contain no reference to the books' designers and many masterpieces have only recently come to light.The first edition of this catalogue provided direct access to a collection that embraces two major Russian artistic movements, futurism and constructivism. It has since become a standard reference tool for libraries, booksellers and researchers in the identification of twentieth-century Russian avant-garde books. With nearly 400 additional entries, the second edition includes supplements of newly identified and recently acquired items in the collections, together with revised author/artist and title indexes. It also includes a selection of black and white illustrations and English translations of titles for researchers who do not read Russian.
