In Peter Beard's diaries, every page is an arrestingly intricate collage of images, text, and ink. Beard allows everything into his diary--photographic images, pen-and-ink work, names and addresses of friends; smears of blood and coffee recur throughout. Every page of this beautifully reproduced edition is a barrage of visual and intellectual stimulation, providing an intimate look into the extraordinarily busy mind of this singular artist.
Lacking Obi. Trace of edge wear; otherwise Fine+/Fine.
