Book Description George Braziller, New York, 1981. Hardcover. Black cloth/boards. White lettering. Yellow dj with bw illus. and black lettering. 325 pp. with approx. 150 bw plates. Text in French/English. Introduction by Andre Breton. English translation by Dorothea Tanning. Created in 1927, first published in Paris in 1929, The Hundred Headless Woman was the first of three collage-novels by Max Ernst. By assembling and recombining images found among countless forgotten illustrated books and journals, Ernst forged a universe of mystery, full of all the possibilities of the surreal, pulling his audience out of complacence and into a fully-engaged world. On each page, visual language supplants verbal language which, in turn, and in perfect paradox, illustrates the pictures. This is, therefore, a 'novel' for which the imagination of the reader-viewer, coaxed by suggestion into abandon, provides the missing link, the narrative glue. The Hundred Headless Woman is a seminal and quintessential 20th-century work of art. "Irrational , violent, tender, ironic, Max Ernst has invoked the whole kaleidoscope of human phenomena in these collages.turned into stunning proposals for adventure." - from the dj. NF/VG- (light wrinkling to dj at head of spine). Seller Inventory # 148836
