    Painter, writer, sound poet, lyricist, performance artist - Byron Gysin (1916-1986) first came to prominence in the 1950s in the heady atmosphere of the so-called Beat Hotel in Paris. As a painter, he is remembered for the evocative views of the Sahara and for his unprecedented calligraphic abstractions inspired by Japanese & Arabic script. His chance observation of random combinations of words led to the development of the cut-up technique by friend William Burroughs. The book produces other visual material to round-out this first comprehensive study of Gysin's life & work. Notes on the Text, Chronology, List of Illustrations and Sources, Index. 246 illus., 195 color. 240p.
