In 1938, as Europe prepared for war, Roland Penrose and Lee Miller made a journey together through the Balkans. On his return to England Roland produced a handmade photobook containing a Surrealist love poem drawn from his memories and pictures from their travels.The following year he would create and print a typeset version based on this book which has today an important place in the history of Surrealist photobooks.
