from the book Abeceda/Alphabet
written by Vitĕzslav Nezval and illustrated with Karel Teige’s photographs of dancer Milca Mayerova,1926
Karel Teige remarks ‘In Nezval’s Abeceda, a cycle of rhymes based on the shapes of letters, I tried to create a “typofoto” of a purely abstract and poetic nature, setting into graphic poetry what Nezval set into verbal poetry in his verse, both being poems evoking the magic signs of the alphabet’
