Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt. Oblique Strategies. Over one hundred worthwhile dilemmas. London: January 1975.
A deck of instruction cards intended to introduce elements of chance into any creative process. Eno used these during the recording of Another Green World, which often challenged the musicians working with him on Another Green World, but Eno ended up with a masterpiece where synthesizers, electric guitar, and vocals evoke strange landscapes and richly textured narratives.
The first edition, one of 550 copies, signed by Eno and Schmidt. In the original black paper box.
