From the dust jacket, on Dalí: “Ever since his limpid, weeping watches were introduced to a startled American public, Dalí has deserved the title ‘disputed genius’.”
From the dust jacket on the contents of this super-weird tour de force: “Recollections of strange and super-natural experiences, interpreted in drawings by the great surrealist— a unique blending of pictures and text, in which two artists, fascinated by the bizarre, have collaborated to produce a haunting and delightful collector’s item.”
Buy the ticket, take the ride. Enjoy being introduced to Grandmama Gladys, the Lady of the Cornflowers, the Poet, and the Hairy Hand on your trippy journey into the minds of Sandoz and Dalí.
