Hameiri, Avigador

Tel-Aviv/New York: Lev-H adash/Yehudah, 1927–28.

Six 32-page issues. 23.5 x 16 cm. Illustrated paper wrappers signed by Pesach Ir-Shai, with the motto “ ofesh ha-davor ainu rashot 'ala uvah” (“searching for speech is not elective but mandatory”). The majority of the texts (both prose and poetry) appears to be by Hameiri. Avigador Hameiri was born in Hungary and served in the Austrian army during World War I. He was captured in 1916 by the Russians, but was released following the Revolution, and emigrated to Palestine in 1921, where he worked on the Ha-aretz newspaper. Pesach Irshai (born István Irsai in Budapest) studied architecture but became a painter and graphic designer. He designed a sans serif Hebrew typeface, which may be the one used in the “Apologies” section of each issue. This journal ceased publication in 1940.

OCLC locates copies at OSU, Stanford, UT Austin, and Yale.
