Tell Me a
An intricately integrated verbo-visual experience—a hypnotic glide through an abstract world of surreal characters, multiple dimensions, and haunting text. The words appear to move on the page, weaving in and out of the photographs, spinning, snaking, flashing like a distant neon sign on a foggy night.
Is this a truer story than the mythic narrative presented? Or is it a satiric dream spiked with nightmare?
This special edition must be seen and touched.

“Allais was a consummate absurdist. From an ordinary phenomenon, simple sentiment or situation, he would logically deduce the looniest, most macabre and most unexpected result … His humour kept all Paris, high and low, waiting breathlessly for the paper which would carry his next tale.” —Lisa Appignanesi
