"This remarkable little book, a return to Man Ray's Dada roots, presages the postmodern artist's photobook in terms of its self-reflexive attitude and complex referential twists and turns. It can be taken as a summation of his experiments in photography, and might be said to be his photographic swansong." (Parr & Badger, vol. 1, 108-109). Item #2192
