Music by Erik Satie
Illustrations by Charles Martin

This is a facsimile of an extremely rare collection of the French master’s brilliant thumbnail sketches — both musical and verbal — of various outdoor sports and amusements. Satie created these pieces to accompany an album of charming, sophisticated drawings by Charles Martin, a well-known illustrator of the day. The composer also added droll verbal commentaries and inscribed both words and music in an exquisite calligraphic hand.
