Combines Jan Saudek's hand-colored photographs of posed scenes--some graphically erotic, others quite prosaic--along with his hand-written texts and illustrations are equal parts Joel-Peter Witkin and R. Crumb. This beautiful book contains a companion book of Saudek's own hand-written English translation. Probably the most desirable Saudek title. With the scarce translation booklet, most often missing when this book is offered.
Very slight imperfection at crown of spine; otherwise Fine+; booklet shows touch of wear along spine.
