Important and influential collage novel by Max Ernst, cropping images from contemporary advertising art to create strange and surreal captioned images and scenes.
The illustrations juxtapose surreal dream sequences and the banal, with captions that pre-figure post modern concerns - such as direct addresses to the reader or phrases without immediate context or connection. The result is powerful, comic, dark and poetic, out reaching the visual forms that the artist uses for the montages.
