F.T. Marinetti , The Futurist Cookbook , San Francisco, CA , Bedford Arts Publishers, 1989, Re-issue, 9.75" x 7.5", softcover, illustrated wraps , NEAR FINE. A hint of edgewear to covers; interior clean, bright and unmarked..

"Both madcap cookbook and manifesto on Futurism, Marinetti's exuberant and entertaining book has been described as one of 'the best artistic jokes of the century'.

No other cultural force except the early twentieth-century avant-garde movement Futurism has produced a provocative work about art disguised as an easy-to-read cookbook. Part manifesto, part artistic joke, Fillippo Marinetti's The Futurist Cookbook is a collection of recipes, experiments, declamations and allegorical tales. Here are recipes for ice cream on the moon; candied atmospheric electricities; nocturnal love feasts; sculpted meats. Marinetti also sets out his argument for abolishing pasta as ill-suited to modernity, and advocates a style of cuisine that will increase creativity. Although at times betraying its author's nationalistic sympathies, The Futurist Cookbook is funny, provocative, whimsical, disdainful of sluggish traditions and delighted by the velocity and promise of modernity." --blurb from the publisher of the UK edition, Penguin Classics

The 1989 re-issue of the original published in 1932 by Italian poet and author of the infamous "Futurist Manifesto", Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was translated into English by Suzanne Brill with an informative Introduction by novelist, historian Lesley Chamberlain. Illustrated with tinted images of original photos and line drawings

Few art movements ever created a cookbook to disseminate their theories but Marinetti has accomplished it, by way of this cultural gem of Futurism. Modernist cuisine at its most wacky.
