Reviews
"I remember buying a copy of Sounds when it was first published in English, and the thrill of discovering this work, page by page. Kandinsky's synthesis of abstraction and representation, of sound and meaning, remains an exciting challenge for artists and poets today. Sounds is unlike any other book. It belongs on the bookshelf of anyone interested in abstract art, poetry, and the unpredictable cavorting of the two."--John Yau, author of Bijoux in the Dark
"Possibly the most beautiful, innovative, and influential artist's book of the twentieth century. A landmark that synthesizes Kandinsky's pioneering abstractions with his radical sound poems and experimental typography."--Starr Figura, The Museum of Modern Art, New York
