Bowdoin College Museum of Art opened Under the Surface: Surrealist Photography this week and a book from the Teti Library’s Special Collection, Banalité, is included in the exhibit!  Banalité was written by Léon-Paul Fargue and features the photogravures of Roger Parry.  The book, published in 1930 also includes creative letterpress.

Send us an email if you would like to make an appointment to view Banalité when it returns to the library.  Banalité was donated to the Teti Library Special Collections by John Teti in 2007.
