Description
Poet and photographer Jindrich Heisler joined the Czech Surrealist Group in 1938, just as Nazi occupation of the country was driving most Czech artists underground. Heisler published his first book of poetry a year later. In his courageous yet brief career—Heisler died suddenly in 1953 at the age of 38—he produced some of the most remarkable assemblage work of the Surrealist movement, including From the Strongholds of Sleep, one of the rarest and most important photobooks produced in the 20th century. This gorgeously illustrated catalogue, with 80 color images of Heisler's assemblage pieces, introduces English-speaking audiences to his work, translating many of his writings for the first time and offering in-depth analysis of his postwar years in Paris in the company of André Breton, Benjamin Péret, the illustrator Toyen, and other major figures of the Surrealist movement.
