Michel Leiris explores the world of language, plays with words, twists them, dislocates them to bring out their secret meanings and uncover new relationships between them: "Blasphemy, wounded woman", "Game of gallows, gallows potentate".
Joan Miro was one of Michel Leiris' closest artists.
Magnificent copy in an astonishing binding by Georges Leroux.
