Josef Koudelka/Robert Delpire: Le Matin. Four inserts (16 pp ea.) with 1968 Prague Invasion Photos), published from August 17-August 20, 1981 (total of 62 photos in the four issues, NOT credited). Designed and edited by Robert Delpire in collaboration with Magnum. Texts by Milan Kundera and Petr Kral. Unbound newsprint. |
An early appearance of Koudelka's famed Prague invasion photos, still before they could be credited to his name! It was not until the publication of his Photo Poche book, around the time of his 1984 exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London, that the invasion pictures were published under his own name. An astoundingly rare, complete set!
Fragile newsprint showing some age darkening; shallow corner crease to no. 3
