    A reproduction of the original Dada Almanac of 1920, capturing Dada in the Berlin phase, after the collapse of the Zurich group but before the explosion that was the Paris Dada Contributions from quite an electric assortment of related artists form all over the world Lots of supplemental notes and materiel A great resource, but a rather difficult read.
