The poet Jan Satunovskii (1913-1982) belongs to a selection of Russian poets who wrote absurd and minimal poetry. Daniil Kharms, Nikolai Oleinikov and Vladimir Maiakovskii were other poets who worked in this style. All had their influence (though often indirect) on contemporary Russian poetry. For his publication of verses by Satunovskii, Goppe choose a typographic design, that closely relates to the constructivist period (the 1930s) in which these poets had their formative years.
