Conceived as an open letter to a lover, this highly sought after title combines Jan Saudek's hand-colored photographs with his own hand-written text and illustrations. Many familiar faces from his other monographs are present (though few images are repeats) as characteristic enactments of beauty, desire, disgust, life, death, and decay. This beautiful book contains a companion book of Saudek's own hand-written English translation.
Some discoloration of lower right front board. Minor sun-fading to edges. A fine tight copy. The wonderful little companion book is Very Fine.
