Il Travestiti (The Transvestites). Photographs by Lisetta Carmi. Texts by Carmi and Elvio Fachinelli. Design by Giancarlo Liprandi. Essedi Editrici, Rome 1972. 164 pp. Tall quarto (12.5 x 9.5 in./32 x 24 cm.) First edition. Hardbound. Photo-illustrated boards. 146 black-and-white reproductions.
Edition Note: Originally issued without a dust jacket; to protect the cover image, one was added to remaining copies five years after the original publication.

A brilliant work of 'neo-realist' documentary! "In the wrong hands [the subject of the transvestite] yields a trashy haul of voyeuristic and prurient imagery...Carmi made these pictures between 1965 and 1971, utilizing the spontaneous photographic aesthetic of the eloquent plea, made by a real woman, for society to understand these 'other' women, trapped in the wrong bodies."--Parr & Badger

A notoriously fragile binding; this copy is tightly bound with slight curve to boards and a trace of wear to 'tips'.
