About the Author

Jindřich Styrský (1899-1942) was a painter, poet, editor, photographer, and collagist. His outstanding and varied oeuvre included numerous book covers and illustrations. He also wrote studies of both Rimbaud and Marquis de Sade. He became a member of Devětsil in 1923, participating in their group exhibitions. Between 1928-29 he was director of the group's drama wing, the "Liberated Theater," and he was also an active editor. In addition to his Edition 69 series, he edited the Erotic Review which he launched in 1930, and Odeon. He was a founding member of The Surrealist Group of Czechoslovakia.

Reviews

It would be futile to look for any concessions to what's in vogue or to outside pressures in Styrský's work. The occupation and war have not diverted him from his path, which is at one with the path of revolution. -- Benjamin Péret
