    1. Un libro extraordinario. Desde la encuadernación y el papel (me sorprendió el peso del libro), hasta el contenido, obra del genial Jan Svankmajer.Lo outstanding del libro es el recorrido de sus obras plásticas y sus collages a la Max Ernst. Las primeras recurrentes en sus obras fílmicas. La imaginación en el punto de ebullición que el ojo logra percibir y mantener indeleble, incluso en total oscuridad.
