[Nude Alphabet]. Beeke, Anthon and Kooiman, Geert with Photo-Story by Van der Elsken. Produced by Anna Beeke. Anton Beeke and Steendruckkerij de Jong & Company, Hilversum, Holland, 1970. From the Quadrat-Print Series, which was edited by Pieter Brattinga. First edition. Small square quarto. Stiff white paper portfolio; grainy photograph of one shooting session on cover. With thirty plates on stiff paper laid in loose, as issued.

A photographic project rooted in the tradition of sixties 'happenings' and experimentation, it demonstrates a relaxed European attitude toward nudity. The three stiff paper portfolio panels unfold to display fifty-five small photographs by Ed Van Der Elsken documenting the photo shoot that produced the plates. In each of the thirty plates, nude female models are arranged to spell out a letter of the alphabet or a punctuation mark. An unusual production.

Very good copy; hinges reinforced at some places with archival 'invisible' cellotape and light handsoiling on portfolio. "Nude Alphabet" written lightly in pencil at upper right of cover.
