The Road is Wider Than Long

by Roland Penrose

Gift Books History Travel

The Road is Wider Than Long Synopsis

In 1938, as Europe prepared for war. Roland Penrose and Lee Miller made a journey together through the Balkans.

Penrose was a painter, author and curator, Miller, previously a model, had had succesful photographic studios in Paris and New York, and was a brilliant photographer. As they travelled Penrose created pictures and took notes. On their return Penrose produced a charming handmade photobook for Miller, a surrealist love poem, drawn from his own memories and records. A limited edition of the book was soon printed and Penrose embellished a small number with a series of Imaginative tipped in colour motifs. The first of which he personalised for Lee Miller.
