"An eye-catching, attractive book, and the interior pages are near perfect. 84 pp. of b/w drawings plus 16 watercolors. Introduction by Henry Miller, which is printed on both sides of the large pages; all the drawings are on one side only to eliminate the possibility of bleed-through or imprinting from one to another. These are quirky drawings depicting people in odd situations, frequently nude. They are lovingly irreverent and this is a true collectors' item." Originally published in 1923 in Berlin, Germany. A much sought after highly collectible book.
