This is the book that inspired David to write the track Taking The Veil.
Text on the back reads:
First published in Paris in 1930, A Little Girl Dreams of Taking the Veil is Max Ernst’s second collage-novel. One of the forermost surrealist artists, Max Ernst has created here a bizarre and enchanting set of images by juxtaposing illustrations from all kinds of books new and old. The collages tell the dream of a young who, having lost her virginity on the day of her first communion, commits herself to a religous vocation. Her dream is an impious and schizophrenic nightmare richly and ironically conceived. Full of alarming images this dreamscape resisits rational interpretation.
A Little Girl Dreams of Taking the Veil is a haunting tour de force which has lost none of its shock or value.
Original published in Paris 1930. Displayed copy is from 1982.
