Notes: Chernikov's most spectacular publication, incorporating numerous brightly coloured architectural designs, which delightfully blur the borders between the practical and the fantastical in architectural and industrial design. An "amazing compendium of one hundred and one coloured inventions which still excite the imagination today" (S. Compton, Russian Avant-Garde Books 1917-1934, p.142).
