This year the Library is seeking cash donations towards acquiring a copy of La Fin du Monde, a key 20th-century illustrated book. Printed in 1919, this exquisite masterpiece of image and typography is illustrated by the brilliant French Cubist Fernand Léger and features text by modernist poet Blaise Cendrars.

Renowned curator and art writer Robert Johnson described it as 'the most beautiful and accessible French artists' book of its era... A message of modernity is evident on every page of this bibliographic masterpiece.'
