np: [ca. late 1960s]. Oblong 4to. Boards. Likely commercial scrapbook, but possibly ad-hoc. Containing [66]pp. plus covers and one fold-out, all mounted both recto and verso with color collages consisting mainly of magazine models, with occassional textual elements (in German, many typed). Spine appears persished. But otherwise sound and apparently complete. Very good. Housed in custom Talas archival clamshell box. (Item ID: 21470)

An extraordinary and unique handmade artist's book, elaborately assembled by an anonymous artist. A kinky but lighthearted celebration of female flagellantism, the book appropriates quintessentially 1960s fashion models and recontextualizes them in dozens of original collages so that they are weilding whips, switches, and various similar tools. Paired with self-referential and irreverant texts, as well as black-and-white hand-penned drawings (presumably by the assembler) of bondage, spankings, and other S&M-themed scenes, the book humorously imagines Mod Girls as doms ó a perhaps intentional visual pun. The collages, many spanning across page spreads (and including one fold-out), exhibit a strikingly skillful and stylish retraint, suggesting an ambition and audience beyond the merely pruriently personal. An outsider book of rare sophistication and wit: the Swinging Sixties meets Dada. Yeah baby.
