The Somnambulist. Photographs by Ralph Gibson. Lustrum Press, 1970. Unpaged. Thin quarto. Second printing. Signed on front free-endpaper. Stiff illustrated wrappers. Black-and-white reproductions.
The first of Gibson's trilogy to be published by his own Lustrum Press. Gibson's oblique use of portraiture and dream-like sequencing revealed the persistance of Surrealism at a time when stream-of-consciousness photography was already established and the psychedelic era was in full swing.
Fine-bit of wear to edges, else bright and crisp.
