Boccioni was probably the greatest artist of the twentieth century - the only reason he is so ignored is because he died early (12916) and didn't have agents promoting his reputation and over-inflating it (like Picasso). Boccioni produced a world of masterpieces, both in painting and sculpture. This book, dealing with one of them, is itself a joy!
