Ada, Paperback / softback Book

Ada Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Idil Atak


In this illustrated version of celebrated poet and art patron Gertrude Stein's first 'word portrait', Berlin-based artist Atak visually recounts the fortunes of the poem's two protagonists, Barnes and Ada Colhard, alongside a hand-written version of the poem.

Generally thought to have been created for Stein's lover, Alice Toklas, the poem represented a significant breakthrough in her prose writing as it focuses on the interior quality of the characters and establishes the stylistic format for many 'portraits' to come.
