In 1938, as Europe prepared for war. Roland Penrose and Lee Miller made a journey together through the Balkans.
Penrose was a painter, author and curator, Miller, previously a model, had had succesful photographic studios in Paris and New York, and was a brilliant photographer. As they travelled Penrose created pictures and took notes. On their return Penrose produced a charming handmade photobook for Miller, a surrealist love poem, drawn from his own memories and records.
A limited edition of the book was soon printed. The first of which he personalised for Lee Miller.
