Quarto [30 cm] Pictorial wraps. Very good. The covers are mildly age-toned. There is a previous owner's name, along with a date, on the last page.
From the rear cover- "The erotic imagery of Hans Bellmer's art is both witty and violent. Obsessed with his central theme- that of the Doll- Bellmer creates capricious, often sado-masochistic, assemblages of parts of the female anatomy. Reflecting the discoveries of Freud, the artist first conceived these images in Nazi Germany of the 1930's as passionate declarations of liberty."
