With photo-essays such as “The Return of the Prodigal Son” and “The Fallen Angel”; essay by curator Marco Livingston and a 1984 interview with Michals. Published in wrappers only, coincident with a touring exhibit that opened at the Oxford, England Museum of Art in December 1984. As issued without dust jacket.
Images fine, lightest edge-wear to near-fine copy, scarce signed.
