Benjamin Péret, Kiki de Montparnasse, Louis Aragon, Man Ray, Paul Eluard


The limited edition of 1929 is the very first facsimile
reprint of Benjamin Péret and Louis Aragon’s
work, Man Ray and Paul Eluard with Kiki de
Montparnasse. Manifesto against censorship or praise
of freedom, presented in the form of a calendar
by seasons, the four photographs of Man Ray are
accompanied by erotic poems “detourtements” of catechist canticles.
Published secretly in Belgium by René Bonell, the
book was seized at the French-Belgian border by
the customs who destroyed almost the entire print
run. This edition is a very faithful facsimile of
the original edition with a cover designed by the
publisher. Fifteen first copies include an unpublished
photograph of Kiki de Montparnasse by Man Ray.
