Looking for Snails on a Sunday Afternoon: Thirty-six Etchings and Three Stories
This is a book of day dreams. It contains thirty-six masterful etchings of erotic, scientific and often just plain weird fantasies that were created over a period of several years. The pictures are accompanied by a foreword, a surrealist introduction that pretends to explain the title of the book, three stories, a recipe that does not belong in a cookbook and a short treatise on the time-honoured art of etching.
`Looking for Snails on a Sunday Afternoon' is the title of one of Rudolf's prints. After choosing it for this book simply because it sounded good, Rudolf noticed that there are snails hidden away or proudly displayed in nearly all of his pictures. There is no secret meaning to this. The artist just happens to like snails. Looking through the book the reader will discover that he also favours dinosaurs, female circus performers, tree trunks that resemble elephants and many other wonderful things.
