Fictcryptokrimsographs: A Book-Work by Les Krims. Introduction by Hollis Frampton. Humpy Press: Buffalo, 1975. 93 pp. Square octavo. INSCRIBED on verso of front wrapper. Photo-illustrated wrappers. 40 color reproductions.
This hysterical book by Les Krims contains reproductions of SX-70 photographs that have been altered during the development process. This technique lends a wacky, sometimes surreal sensibility to the conceptual nudes Krims has set up to photograph. A humorous look at the nude and sexuality and Krims' creative spirit.
Very Good; personal gift inscription on verso of front wrapper dateed 1976 (possibly from Krims); crease to its lower corner; moderate abrasion to joint; spine crease with one loose page.
