This book is a veritable bibliographical landmark, due in equal measure to its intrinsic value and its special significance. Antoni Tàpies produced the suite of drawings between 1950-1951, the culminating moment of his oneiric period, when the hallmark of Surrealism and the consolidation of his own personality were crystallizing in works that reached extraordinary heights. Joan Brossas prose poems, written at the same time as Tàpies was working on his drawings, comprise a parallel vision of the world expressed in literature, and contain a profound lyricism and originality that in themselves justify the prominent position that this poet holds in Catalan literature. Drawings and poems brought thus together are testimony of the period in which they were produced.
