Stefan Themerson
The Urge to Create Visions

In a foreword, Themerson describes this book as ‘a record of past dreams’, based as it is on his visionary essay of 1936. As well as an historic document, with many stills from 1920s and 30s cinema, it remains a vital analysis of essential properties of the moving image in its purest form. An appendix describes and illustrates the Themersons' experimental films of 1932-1945.
