Edward James and Las PozasBook - 2007
Socialite Edward James was a patron of surrealist artists such as Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte. Focussing on James' years in Mexico, Surreal Eden describes his estate of Las Pozas where he built one surrealist structure after another, providing full employment for the nearby town. From buttocks sticking out of a hillside to an elaborate aviary built on high-rise towers, Las Pozas is a surreal tribute to one of the most eccentric personalities of the early 20th century.
