Fortunato Depero and Depero futurista 1913–1927 by Gianluca Camillini. With a foreword by Steven Heller and a complete Fortunato Depero’s bibliography edited by Martine Josette Grange; The book is published by Rubbettino Editore, with support from del Mart – Museo di arte moderna e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto and under the patronage of AIAP, Associazione Italiana design della comunicazione visiva. 320 pages and more than 150 illustrations of original archival material coming from international public and private collections.
This research examines Depero futurista 1913–1927 — the so-called ‘bolted book’ — created in 1927 by Futurist artist Fortunato Depero (1892–1960). Although Depero and his book have already been the subject of artistic re-evaluation, the literature relating to this work neglects several key aspects about the artist, still failing to provide a detailed account of Depero futurista 1913–1927.
The goal of this study is to address these gaps in the analysis of the book and its author by examining it in greater depth than any previous account and devising a research methodology tailored to its specific qualities. This publication is an interdisciplinary study of a book published during the Fascist era — a promotional and commercial tool as well as a Futurist work of art — which seeks to accurately define the role of Depero futurista 1913–1927 in the history of design and established narratives of modern graphic design and typography.
It is aimed at professionals, academics or simply design enthusiasts, who understand this discipline, and all of its facets, contexts and associated topics.
