The Exquisite Book

'The Exquisite Book,' An Elaborate Game of Visual Telephone, Launches

In The Exquisite Book, which sees its West Coast launch tomorrow night at Rare Device, 100 artists play upon a game invented by the Surrealists in the 1920s called the "Exquisite Corpse." In the original game, a paper is folded into three parts. One person draws a head, leaving only the neckline for the second person, who draws the midsection. The third draws the legs and feet. When the paper is unfolded, the character they jointly created is revealed. Way more fun than Hangman, yes?
