It is "less a criticism of any local system than a total and melodramatic re-arrangement of all life. Unlike the reportorial artist, whose scenes and personnel are ready-made, the man who draws pictures like those assmbled here is obliged to create a nightmare landscape of his own and to people it with men, beasts, and even machines whose appearance and behaviour are terribly at variance with the observable universe." - from the introduction.; 4to 11" - 13" tall
