About the Author

Wassily Kandinsky was a Russian painter and art theorist, author of Concerning the Spiritual in Art (1912) and Point to Line and Plane (1926). Elizabeth R. Napier is professor of English and American literatures at Middlebury College. Her literary translations include Selected Poems and Related Prose by F. T. Marinetti (co-translated with Barbara R. Studholme, Yale, 2002).


"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
