La Septième Face du Dé: Poèmes - Découpages
La Septième face du dé (The Seventh Side of the Die)
Marcel Duchamp, American (born France), 1887 - 1968. Written by Georges Hugnet, French, 1906 - 1974. Published by Editions Jeanne Bucher, Paris.
For La Septième face du dé, Georges Hugnet combined his talents as both a writer and an artist to create twenty Surrealist poem-collages. Each printed page includes text and photographs cut from mass-media sources and arranged into erotic writings and images. The cover of the book reproduces Marcel Duchamp’s 1921 readymade sculpture Why Not Sneeze, Rose Sélavy (Philadelphia Museum of Art, 1950-134-75a--e). Constructed from single, combined, or slightly altered manufactured objects, such works had a lasting effect on Surrealism, as this cover suggests.
