Product Description

In the mid-1960s, inspired by William Burroughs's 'cut-up' writing technique, artist Tom Phillips bought an obscure Victorian novel - W.H. Mallock's 1892 novel, 'A Human Document,' and commenced to cutting and pasting the extant text, treating the pages with gouache and ink, isolating the words that interested him while scoring out unwanted words or painting over them. The result was 'A Humument,' and the first version appeared in 1970. This fourth edition incorporates revisions and reworkings - over a hundred pages are replaced by new versions. 368 color illustrations. 384p.
