About this title

Synopsis:

First published on 1980, "A Humument" became a cult classic. In this work the author has blended word and image by taking a forgotten Victorian novel, "A Human Document", and replacing text with visual images of all kinds. He has mined the text to make it yield the ghosts of other possible stories, scenes, poems, erotic incidents and surrealist catastrophes which seemed to lurk within all of its words. It began to tell and depict, amongst other memories, dreams and reflections, the sad story of Bill Toge, one of love's casualties.

About the Author:

The English painter, writer, and composer Tom Phillips curated the groundbreaking exhibition “Africa: The Art of the Continent” at the Royal Academy in 1992. He is himself a collector of African art, specializing in the arts of Ghana and the Ivory Coast. His other books include The Postcard Century.
