The Sleep of Reason
Lyle Bonge

Edition : First / New York / Jargon Society / 1974 / Hardcover / Near Fine / Near Fine
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.
