About this Item

Fascinating --and highly skilled-- artist's book by Danish artist Palle Nielsen. 53 linocuts on the rectos, blank versos. Very brief captions (in both Danish and English) below each linocut. Each piece complete unto itself but there's a clear, palpable theme of despair and urban angst. This is the 1964 2nd English version and, even though it's a paperback, has a pictorial dustjacket. A clean and VG+ 12mo (with no internal writing or markings of any kind) in a bright, VG- dustjacket, with light chipping at the spine ends. The remarkable inscription of a jilted lover (possibly from Erik Fischer, who wrote the Introduction {also translated into English}): "My Dear Mary, This "comic strip" by a famous Danish artist will show you how I felt, acted and was dealt with when you left me for the "go-go" in the Royal Festival Hall. Yours, Erik". Bookseller Inventory # 7322
