This installation, drawn from the Library of The Museum of Modern Art, presents a sampling of mid-twentieth-century Surrealist-inspired artist's journals and books published in the Americas. It features work created by exiled European Surrealists and sympathetic Americans during the World War II era, as well as artist-run magazines from the 1950s and 1960s that drew on Surrealist publishing practices.

Organized by May Castleberry, Editor, Contemporary Editions, Library Council of The Museum of Modern Art.
