"The first two numbers in the second series of CODE(X) Monographs focus on Marinetti's Parole In Liberta Futuriste, one of the supreme artist books of the 20th Century. The first is an essay by Vincent Giroud, a noted authority on this particular book and Director of the Beinecke Library at Yale University when they acquired their copy. The second number is a photo-lithographic reproduction of the metal book itself and is presented here as illustration to accompany Giroud's thoughtful essay." - from http://www.codexfoundation.org/monographs.html
