Product Description:

This delightfully illustrated book provides a spellbinding glimpse into the world of the Surrealists by entering Farley Farm - a house inhabited by leading figures of the Surrealist movement, such as Roland Penrose, Lee Miller and Man Ray.

Review:

Highly enjoyable. (Financial Times)

This book ... is a vivid record of a house at the centre of an artistic movement (Independent)

Penrose's book is a delight - informative, well structured and concise. (Argus)

Now available in paperback form although not a paperback as we know it. It's a big, handsome volume, beautifully made and over-flowing with especially commissioned photographs by Alen MacWeeney, alongside iconic photographs from the Lee Miller archive. (ETC Magazine)
