The Road is Wider Than Long

During July and August 1938, as Europe prepared for war, Roland Penrose and Lee Miller journeyed through the Balkans. Penrose was a painter and a writer; Miller was a studio assistant to Man Ray, a muse to several artists, and a photographer. As they travelled, Penrose snapped pictures and took notes of a world that both artists were just discovering and that would soon largely be destroyed and transformed forever. Shortly after their return, Penrose published "The Road Is Wider Than Long", containing the photographs he had taken and poetic commentary on what he and Miller experienced during their travels. The work was published in a limited edition with several illuminated initial capital letters and a colour sketch by Penrose. This is a facsimile edition of the work - which Penrose called "an image diary from the Balkans".
