About this Item

Quarto. 55pp., frenchfold. One of 300 copies signed by the four artist-printers of the press. A wild "adventure" illustrated with eight four-color, full-page woodcuts and 66 smaller black and white woodcuts. The front cover has a compass mounted in the center to "guide" the reader through the book. Buch's text upholds his personal style of grotesque subjects, fantastic realism, and experimentation, carrying the reader along through dangerous and fanciful circumstances in an unfamiliar world. This tendency toward the surreal renders this text a fitting publication for the Werkstatt Rixdorfer, one of the most idiosyncratic of the post-war German presses, known for creating books with bold illustrations but a humorous sensibility. In cloth-backed green printed boards. Boards show slight fading as well as a faint pen mark to upper board, else a fine copy in plain cardboard slipcase. (Typen 127-12). Bookseller Inventory # 3669
