Go figure

A while back, Dizzyhead Thomas mentioned that Stefan Themerson—who is sort of like Bolaño for me in terms of

numbers of titles in apartment


titles actually read

—made some films. Who knew?

Then the other day I finally bought Queneau's Exercises in Style—you know the New Directions edition with the funny nude drawings of people contorted into letters?

Themerson did those drawings! (There's a hint in that previous link: Themerson and his wife Franciszka's Gaberbocchus Press put out Exercises, in Barbara Wright's translation, in 1947.)

For more on Themerson, read Dizzyhead Ben's piece from the PTSNBNLS.
