Eduardo Paolozzi ‘The Metallization of a Dream’  4to. Bound in brown paper embossed boards with silver decoration and leather spine with silver lettering.A limited unspecified edition of possibly 400 copies, this is number 55. Printed at the Royal College of Art in 1963 by the Lion and Unicorn Press. 64pp. Illustrated with numerous colour and monochrome illustrations of Paolozzi s work including 4 photo-lithographs reproduced from separation drawings. The Metallization of a Dream is a fascinating book, showing in word and image Paolozzi s artistic process. Designed and written by John Munday in collaboration with the artist, the book was described by Paolozzi as “random jottings of ideas…which are developed as I work on my material. the search for architypes to aid a dream in metal”, a commentary by Lawrence Alloway. The book’s aesthetic is typical of Paolozzi’s work of that time; it is chaotic, rough and non-sequential. Some light wear and marks to cover , otherwise a very nice copy.Size 27 x22 cm (10.5 x 8.5 inches
