Also includes an Introduction by celebrated author and poet, Max-Pol Fouchet. From that introduction: "Vol parallelle...This title given by Johnny Friedlaender to one of the works reproduced in the present volume can be likened to the formula which has never ceased to be his: exodus, movement, the dynamic balance of a number of forces converging with unchecked momentum towards self-evident truth. In his art, to both senses and spirit, it is poetry and plasticity which are parallel and, since space merges into time, simultaneous." Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
