Macao et Cosmage ou L'Experience de Bonheur
.
Paris: Aux Editions de la Nouvelle Revue Francaise,(1919) Square folio,original pictorial boards colored by pochoir. 54 pp.
Macao et Cosmage was written and illustrated in 1919 by Edy Legrand. The book is is one of the most significant volumes of the century, representing a significan break from the romantic styles of Edmund Dulac, Arthur Rackham and Kay Nielsen. It was a large square book (12 X 12) brilliantly colored by hand in thestencil "pochoir" process reflective of the Jazz Fauve movement. The minimal text was written by hand. Macao et Cosmage broke also from the book-binding practices of the early century. Unlike the heavy art productions of Hodder and Stoughton (England) and Scribners (USA) with delicate tipped-in plates, carefully bound and printedon fine paper, leGrand's book was big, bold, rough and inexpensive. Pristine copies of Rackham and Dulac abound today. It is nearly impossible to find even a very good copy of Macao et Cosmage
