About This Item

Jargon 77.

"Here is another book you can either attribute benignly to Black Mountain College or curse it for."

Starkly vivid and often grotesquely personal portraits taken by Lyle Bongé during visits to New Orleans for Mardi Gras throughout the early sixties. This stunning collection is prefaced by interview of Bonge conducted by fellow BMC alumnus, writer James Leo Herlihy. Preface by Jonathan Williams.

Landscape format quarto with full-page black-and-white photographs. 17 pages, [100] pages of illustrations. Paperback with the usual wear to the edges of cover and spine; price sticker on back cover and residue of an earlier sticker on the front cover.
