Bruno Adler

By Adler-Antonini, Bruno (b.1938). Leo Stern, introduction

no place: no publisher, 1977. Paperback. Unpaginated, perhaps 45 pages, light-green textured paperstock in sewn signatures with eighteen 5x7 inch color plates mounted opposite caption titles, plus nine-pages of Leo Stern's preface set with eccentric typography; softbound, a 7.5-inch-square paperback in coated black and bronze wraps. Covers are quite handled and a little edgeworn, hinge-area shows mild scarring from over-glueing by binder, mounting leaves are lightly bent at corner-tips, plates are uniformly very good. All in all, a good (good-only) copy. The artist's stylistic palette recalls the Beatles' cartoon movie, Yellow Submarine, but with a very very dark side. "Vancouver surrealistic painter..born in Trieste to a socially prominent and wealthy family. An architect, and painter of mittel-european back-ground..living in Vancouver since 1976." The introductory remarks by Stern are datelined Vienna 1977.

Inanimate objects make sounds; subtle emotions take the shape of animals and gods... Perhaps the most surprising transformation [or metamorphosis] is worked on the war, to which Apollinaire assented as few modern poets have done. Calligrammes is full of poems which discover an astonishing beauty in the operations and accoutrements of war: the sound and sight of artillery" ..&c &c.
