« The very invasive character of Surrealism was enough to prove its success.»

 

Alexander Trotski

 

This limited-print edition from 1929 is the very first reprint in facsimile of the oeuvre made in homage to Kiki de Montparnasse by Benjamin Péret, Louis Aragon, Man Ray and Paul Éluard. Pornographic renditions of catholic canticles are presented in the form of a four-season calendar, with four photographs by Man Ray. First secretly published in Belgium by René Bonell, it was seized at the France-Belgium border and almost completely destroyed by customs officers. This book is a meticulous reproduction of the original work, with a cover by the editor. Fifteen head editions contain a never-before-seen photograph of Kiki de Montparnasse by Man Ray.
