The Sleep of Reason

Oblong 4to, ca 96pp. Purple cloth in photographic dustwrapper. Numerous Black & White plates.


Very special book from Black Mountain Colege alumni Bonge and Herlihy. Bong spent some time in New Orleans to document the Mardi Gras, and as a result, has made probably one of the best documents that exist. Flamboyant, fascinating and creepy all at the same time. Amazing.
