El Lissitzky's 1922 designs for Mayakovsky's For The Voice are rather beautiful.

"this book of poems... is intended for reading aloud. I have made an index book to spare the reader the need to search for individual poems. This book is made up solely of material from the type case. Exploiting the possibilities of two-colour printing (superimpositions, cross hatchings and so on, [...] I wanted to create an equivalent unity between poetry and typographic elements."
