ERNST, MAX. 1891-1976, illustrator.
CREVEL, RENE. Mr. Knife, Miss Fork. Paris: Black Sun Press, 1931.
8vo (178 x 115 mm). Translated by Kay Boyle. 19 original photograms by Ernst. Original black cloth decorated in gilt and blind after Ernst. Minor sunning to spine, else excellent.
LIMITED EDITION, one of 200 copies on "finest bristol paper." Ernst's photograms use the same process as Man Ray's Rayographsplacing objects on photographic paper and exposing it to light. The production of the book must have been labor intensive considering that each and every photogram had to be made from Ernst's original artwork.
