Andy Hope 1930

« Possession» they call it... Sometimes an entity jumps in the body  — outlines waver in yellow orange jelly  — and hands move to disembowel the passing whore or strangle the nabor child in hope of alleviating a chronic housing shortage. As if I was usually there but subject to goof now and again... Wrong! I am never here... Never that is fully in possession, but somehow in a position to forestall ill-advised moves... Patrolling is, in fact, my principle occupation... No matter how tight security, I am always somewhere outside giving orders and inside this straight jacket of jelly that gives and stretches but always reforms ahead of every movement, thought impulse, stamped with the seal of alien inspection..."

William Burroughs

 

This book is a modification of a children’s book, destined for a model house hostess. It was designed by Andy Hope 1930, Dr. Dou and M. Suzuki for the birthday of Vero Cruz in Montreuil-sous-Bois. The boxed set with a rombo-cubist frontispiece, created by M. Suzuki was gilt-printed at the Marcial workshops in Paris. The 18 copies were made from original collages. They are signed and numbered.
