A complete run of the scarce late Surrealist periodical, the first in the post-War period, resulting from a collaboration between several major figures of the movement, including Victor Brauner, André Breton, Matta, Max Ernst, Jacques Herold, Toyen, et al., with Surrealist texts, typography, and images juxtaposed throughout. Each issue printed recto and verso on one large newsprint sheet, folded to form four pages, some age-darkening and weakness along folds, some minor tears along creases, issue no. 3 with a patched repair along central fold. Folio. Self-wrpps. Paris (Librairie de Hune) 1948-1949.
A fascinating and little-known serial, with a distinct visual style showcasing work by many of the most important figures in post-War Surrealism. In addition to the figures named above, there are contributions by Sarane Alexandrian, Alain Jouffroy, Marcel Lecomte, Jindrich Heisler, Alfred Jarry, Marcel Jean, and Stanislas Rodanski; the "Typoplastique" is by Fredrick Kiesler. Due to the nature of the paper stock, N.E.O.N is inherently fragile; the copy we offer here has some browning but in general is in excellent condition. Book ID: 42232
