Echaurren Salaris Collection
Edited by Claudia Salaris.
How the Italian Futurists made inventive use of the postal service through postcards, stamps, adverts and more
This third volume in a series on the Echaurren Salaris Collection, the most complete assembly of futurism memorabilia in the world, presents almost 800 pieces of futurist ephemera, including postcards designed by artists, messages of propaganda and satire or picture postcards and letters with their envelopes, headed notepaper and advertisements, postage and poster stamps—making this book a fundamental means of investigation of the multifaceted world of futurism.
In pursuit of its ambitious dream of a “futurist reconstruction of the universe,” the movement founded by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti did not limit itself to utilizing the postal network to send books, magazines and proclamations all over the world, but created a style of postal communication that was new in both its conception and its presentation.
