They sure don't make books like this anymore. Published in 1961 and with a forward by Dean Martin, this book is without a doubt something of a treasure. It features artifacts and sculptures ranging from Ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece right up to the 20th Century. These sculptures are, however, all at a "party" and are in various states of intoxication. The cover really explains its premise better than I ever could:
Dean Martin says in the introduction:
Let me say right off that I was skeptical about this project from the beginning. I mean, how could I be party poking fun at something I've known and loved all my life? Something that people think of immediately when they hear my name. How could I join a group out to spoof art?
Ah! Makes me want to rush out and get a heap of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis movies! Anyway, here are a few of the images from the book that I've selected for your viewing pleasure.
