This week's links. Enjoy.
A Dictionary of Surrealism and the Graphic Image
Rick Poyner of Design Observer writes about his post: "This text was first published as the introduction to Uncanny: Surrealism and Graphic Design, the catalogue for an exhibition I curated in 2010 for the Moravian Gallery in Brno in the Czech Republic as part of the Brno Biennial. The catalogue is now out of print and the text is republished with thanks to the gallery." Fun fact — it includes a reference to the Surrealist's description of automatism, which inspired the name of my blog.
