Cendrar’s introduced the world to Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, and in 1913 with Sonja Delaunay to create the “simulaneous book” - a bookwork that was exhibited at the MOMA in 2013.

"Cendrars seemed to know everything because he read insatiably. he had been everywhere, worked in a dozen fields and had vast curiosity. Yet, he never tried to impress you with his learning. He just wanted to share what he'd read and been and done." Jim Christy
