Review: Joseph Cornell/Marcel Duchamp --In ResonanceUser Review - Tosh - Goodreads
This is such a beautiful book. The thought of Cornell in the same room with Duchamp makes me feel faint.. But this book is beautifully put together. The art bounces at you and I never realized that Cornell helped Duchamp on his box which included minatures of all of Duchamp's work. Amazing! Read full review
