by Gertrude Stein
Illustrations by Lisa Congdon
First published in 1914, Gertrude Stein’s revolutionary poetic work Tender Buttons is a must-read for every serious lover of literature. Delighting in the rhythm of words, its first section, “Objects,” runs playful linguistic circles around teacups, ribbons, umbrellas and other quotidian artifacts. Presented here in an exquisite small package, this new edition pairs Stein’s avant-garde verse with colorful, contemporary illustrations by indie art star Lisa Congdon, who illuminates and interrogates the classic Cubist text with visuals as capricious as Stein’s own prose. A celebration of independent thinking old and new, this captivating marriage of image and text is a treasure of arts and letters.
