About the book:

This book is a facsimile of the original Russian first edition, which was published in 1922.

A masterpiece of ideological simplicity it presents El Lissitzky's political-didactic attempt to teach children mathematics using a puzzle in which the red square always overcomes the black. This is a prime example of where modern typography began. Lissitky's playful approach attracted the eye and made the viewer want to read.

As Max Bill commented, typography is a game that leads to communication, and it all began with Lissitzky's tale of two squares.
