In his 1924 Surrealist Manifesto, André Breton explained that the movement seeks to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality into an absolute reality, a super-reality.” What started out as an art and literary style transformed into a movement, affecting everything from fashion and film to interior design. Through unleashing the creativity of the unconscious mind with strange, dreamlike imagery, the surrealists created their own interior environment that offered a stark contrast to the prevailing views of interior design of the era. A clean, tight and crisp copy with a touch of handling. One 1/4 chip to top jacket verso.
