Summary

Summary

"The most everyday object is a vessel; a vehicle of my thoughts." In Picasso's hands, cardboard, paper, and rope metamorphose into a guitar, a goat, a woman. His friend, the great photographer Edward Quinn, a privileged witness to Picasso's creative moments, recreates them here in 80 pages of everyday objects created in an imaginary world.
