Additionally inscribed by Hugnet to the original purchaser, publisher Roberto Altmann. "Published in 1969 but using collages dating from many years before, an therefore essentially a modernist book - show[s] him at his best.a surreal, erotic travel tale based on the Michelin Guide.ostensibly a journal and photo-album of a trip along the Brittany coast.Hugnet's photomontages are both complex and witty.This volume could be regarded as the last great romp of a 1930s surrealist, but Hugnet reminds us that the surrealists took their play seriously. The whole production, by Henri Mercher, is of the highest quality." Parr and Badger, I, 109. Bookseller Inventory #
