Hofshteyn, Dovid and Arn Kushnirov. Shtam: azkore. Moscow: Farlag “Shtrom”, 1922.
Rare collection of poems by Hofshteyn and Kushnirov, two very prominent Yiddish modernist writers. In the early 1920s they co-edited the influential literary journal “Der shtrom” (The Stream) in Moscow; in the late 1940s, both fell victim to the Stalinist purges of Yiddish writers. Inscribed by Hofshteyn and Kushnirov to David Vardi (1893-1973), founding member of Habimah, the first professional Hebrew repertory theater, which later became the National Theater of Israel. Wrappers by avant-garde artist and illustrator Nathan Altman.
