Book The Labyrinth Description/Summary:
Throughout his career, the acclaimed artist Saul Steinberg created a series of unique, wondrous books. Far richer than simple catalogs or collections of drawings, these carefully arranged works formed a kind of continuous visual autobiography-a record, in drawings both simple and detailed, comic and beautiful, of an inimitable mind's encounter with the world. The Labyrinth, first published in 1960 and long out of print, may be the best of these. Here is Steinberg, as he put it at the time, "discovering and inventing a great variety of events- Illusion, talks, music, women, cats, dogs, birds, the cube, the crocodile, the museum, Moscow and Samarkand (winter, 1956), other Eastern countries, America, motels, baseball, horse racing, bullfights, art, frozen music, words, geometry, heroes, harpies, etc." This edition, featuring all the original art along with new editorial material, will allow readers to discover (and invent) Steinberg's world all over again.
