  • Winter Journeys
    Winter Journeys (English, Hardback) Georges Perec, The Oulipo

    The Oulipo's members have included luminaries of the calibre of Italo Calvino, Marcel Duchamp and Georges Perec. In 1979 Georges Perec wrote a brief entertainment for a publisher's catalogue: The Winter Journey.

  • The Tutu
    The Tutu (English, Hardback) Leon Genonceaux

Yet despite its absurdities, its eccentricities and its extravagance, in the end it somehow...

  • Theory Of The Great Game
    Theory Of The Great Game (English, Hardback) Dennis Duncan

    Between 1928 and 1930, the Paris magazine Le Grand Jeu (The Great Game) ran to three issues. During its brief period of activity, however, Le Grand Jeu was more than a little magazine that vanished in the orbit of the Surrealist movement. The journal was the public face of a tightly-bound group of artists and writers who since adolescence had systematically attacked their perceptions of reality by...
