A companion volume to ES KOMMT DER NEUE FOTOGRAF by Werner Graff, who had a hand in the production of this volume. The text by Richter deals with Dada, Surrealism in film, and the emerging avant-garde.
"Berlin-born Hans Richter - Dadaist, painter, film theorist and filmmaker - was for four decades one of the most influential members of the cinematic avant-garde. Richter assembled some of the century's liveliest artists as co-creators of Dreams That Money Can Buy, his most ambitious attempt to bring the work of the European avant-garde to a wider cinema audience. Among its admirers is film director David Lynch."--British Film Institute
Fine in Very Good dust jacket; crisp, bright boards and titles; trace of foxing to page edges; wear and creasing at extremities of jacket; very slight chipping at 'tips'. Nice example of scarce jacket!!
