Black & White Edition. This is the first English translation of Marie Wilson & Nanos Valaoritis' "Terre de diamant", which first appeared in French in 1958. Marie Wilson, an American surrealist, was an active participant in the Paris surrealist group in the 1950s. This book, the only book Marie herself has published, is a supreme document of poetic evidence, infused by her collaboration with the Greek poet Nanos Valaoritis. Marie was inspired to create a series of sixteen lithographs, and Nanos prepared the sixteen parallel texts that accompany them. Marie and Nanos subsequently married in 1960. They live today in Athens, Greece.
