Legendary and very scarce artist's book from the late and controversial Heinecken, who made it originally whilst teaching in Chicago. The New York times described it thus: "In the 'He/She' pieces the sexual content is mostly implied by the text, since only a few of the Polaroid prints are sexually explicit. 'He' and 'She' characters talk somewhat disjointedly about such matters as kissing and going to bed, but the main thrust of the dialogues is to explore what Heinecken has called 'relational possibilities.' The pictures, which often have little to do in any obvious way with the dialogue they frame, seem simply to offer a visual set of relational possibilities that interact with those of the text." Wonderful to see in such a good condition, and of course, signed.
