This time the setting is the Greek island of Symi, a stone's throw from Turkey, where the artist lived, cooked and collaged under the roof of the unforgettable Kosta Theos, inventor, Son of God, and sworn foe of such 'monkey business' as the internal combustion engine, death, and the exploitation of man by man." ------- from the Translator's Introduction.

NF, clean, tight contents and VG covers, but art school ex-lib. copy with usual marks. Acetate cover is slightly rubbed and has pieces chipped off at top/bottom edges of front "flap" area.
