Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This delightful collection allows everyone to enjoy firsthand the provocative methods used by the artists and poets of the Surrealist school to break through conventional thought and behavior to a deeper truth. Invented and played by such artists as André Breton, Rene Magritte, and Max Ernst, these gems still produce results ranging from the hilarious to the mysterious and profound.

Synopsis:

This delightful book opens up for everyone the unorthodox creative methods of the Surrealist school of artists and poets that flourished in Europe in the early 1900s. Outrageous language games, alternative card games, "Dream Lotto", and automatic techniques for making poems, stories, collages, and photomontages are accompanied by the art of Max Ernst, Hans Arp, and Tristan Tzara.
