“If I said I put Norman O. Mustill in a class with the great collagists dating back through the 20th century (like Hausmann, Heartfield, or Höch) — which I do — he’d laugh at the presumption. But anyone who has seen FLYPAPER, his book of demonic collages in black and white, or the huge collages in blazing color that hang on the walls of his desert lair, would know what I’m saying. Not many have seen his work because he refused to play the art game. He has shunned publicity and guards his privacy to an extreme. You certainly won’t find much about him on the Internet. If you’re lucky enough to know him personally, you’ll often find yourself chortling in gales of laughter. Because nothing pleases him more than entertaining friends by taking note of the world’s absurdities or making exquisite fun of its solemnities…”
(Jan Herman)

Cold Turkey Press has put together a beautiful collection of collages by the elusive artist Norman O. Mustill, who is known for his collaborations with Mary Beach, Claude Pélieu and Jan Herman. All 11 collages date from 1975 but only some of them were actually published at the time. The rest of the powerful material remained unpublished until this Cold Turkey Press edition appeared. The portfolio is called Cuisine Rapide and has been printed in a limited edition of 36 copies. Only a couple of copies are available from Sea Urchin. Better hurry. This Cuisine Rapide serves a tasty meal but it will be gone before you can sink your teeth in.
