Had Gadya: The Only Kid: Facsimile of El Lissitzky's Edition of 1919

Arnold J. Band, Editor, Nancy Perloff, Introduction by Getty Research Institute $25 (42p) ISBN 978-0-89236-744-3
Had Gadya/ The Only Kid: Facsimile of El Lissitsky's Edition of 1919, edited by Arnold J. Band, contains just what the title promises: the folksong ""Had Gadya,"" which is traditionally sung at Ashkenazic seders, and the illustrated book that the Russian avant-garde artist El Lissitsky (1890-1941) made of it in 1919. Although the song is usually a hit with children, the book-packaged elegantly, accompanied by annotated thumbnail illustrations and a scholarly yet clear introduction about the Jewish cultural renaissance in Russia between 1912 and the early 1920s and its impact on Lissitsky-will probably be of most interest to admirers of Lissitsky's more mature work, who will be startled by the contrast in theme and style.
