Full Description

4to. Issues 1 and 2 (all published), each comprising (2) + 11 + (3)pp, with litho text ills. Each issue is stapled at spine as issued, and the pages of each issue are unopened.

The two issues, all published, of this very short-lived periodical, issued and wholly written by the Austrian modernist architect Adolf Loos (1870-1933). Loos had spent three years in the USA in the mid 1890s, and the periodical reflects his view that Austria and Austrians would benefit from a wider adoption of British and North American cultural attitudes. It offers Loos’s opinions on a wide range of social, literary and artistic topics, ranging from fashion and wallpaper to masturbation.
