This bk is mainly Jean Arps' writings. I enjoyed it very much when I read it - perhaps 30 yrs ago. This particular series was great for having the artists themselves thoroughly respresented. If you like Arp's paintings & sculpture for their flowing simplicity then you'll like his writing for much the same reason. Here's an excerpt from "The Tirolean Elephant": "When finally nothing is left of the piano beneath their hands, they rub the billions of time, they heap up electric guts in zeppelins, crown flies, and eat salted infants, phosphorous oranges, and airplane marmalade." if you liked that & cd happily read another 500pp or so like it, then you're set!
