A reproduction of a 1938 photobook Roland Penrose made for Lee Miller as they traveled the world at the outset of World War II.
In 1938, as Europe prepared for war, Roland Penrose and Lee Miller made a journey together through the Balkans. Penrose was a painter, author, and curator. Miller, previously a model, was a brilliant photographer. As they traveled, Penrose created pictures and took notes, and on their return produced a charming handmade photobook for Miller-a surrealist love poem, drawn from his own memories and records.
This special facsimile edition of the book Penrose wrote for Miller has an important place in the history of surrealist literature, and it provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives of two artists and their journey of discovery in a world that would soon be transformed forever.
