This is the first book-length study of the unique collaborations between surrealist painters and authors that resulted in illustrated books. Hubert examines the interrelationships between the visual and verbal arts as both were freeing themselves from outer codification and mimesis.

Renée Riese Hubert is Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Irvine.From Library Journal:
Professor Hubert examines the history of the dialogue between surrealistic graphics and text, fulfilling her aim "to situate and define the surrealist book in its various manifestations" over the past six to eight decades. She offers ample, sensitive, and intelligent insight, documenting her presentation with both illustration (color plates not seen) and quotation from the illustrated texts and earlier surrealist critics, including Breton. A genuine work of scholarship, accessible to those with casual or recent interest in modern art and of significance to artists and scholars; highly recommended for most collections.
