The Secret Album of America. Joe Schwind. Xeroxial Editions, Madison, Wisconsin, 1984. First edition. Narrow oblong octavo. Stiff turquoise photo/xeroxed illustrated wrappers. Unpaged.
Schwind's commentary on contemporary America's obsession with shopping shown in a series of forty-seven bizarre xeroxed photomontage images set within various typographic borders. Abraham Lincoln's head, shoes and clocks that defy gravity, various types of guns, and animal heads on human bodies are repeating imagery.
A fine copy.
