Bifur 1



Éditions du Carrefour



No. 1 of a series of 8 volumes published between May, 1929 and June 1931. Illustrated with hand-fed photogravures. Includes works by Blaise Cendrars, Henry Michaux, Isaac Babel, Jean Toomer, Tristan Tzara, et al. No. 336 of 3,000 copies printed.

Contains early photogravures by Germaine Krull, André Kertész, Eli Lotar, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and Maurice Tabard. Considered one of the most important "little magazines" of the interwar period, this fragile publication not only contained important works in surrealism, and world literature, but was also one of the rare publications to prioritize photography, with images by young and still largely unknown artists such as Kertész, Krull, and Moholy-Nagy.
