Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A charming, mind-bending and anarchic book of imagined civilizations Most cosmic civilizations long for things, in the depths of their souls, they would never openly admit to. Trurl and Klapaucius are constructors - they travel around the universe creating machines of astonishing inventiveness and power and visiting a bewildering variety of violent, peculiar and morose civilizations. The Cyberiad is oddly reminiscent of Gulliver s Travels, The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy, The Phantom Tollbooth and Alice in Wonderland. Charming, mind-bending and anarchic, it is perhaps Lem s greatest work. This edition includes all of Daniel Mroz s hallucinatory original illustrations. Seller Inventory # APG9780141394596
