1st thus 2012 122pp Sidereal Press hardback. 16pp b/w photos and 16pp colour. Ltd. ed. 300 numbered copies. Translated by Merrill Cole. Anita Berber (1899-1928) and Sebastian Droste (1892-1927) were the most notorious dancers of Weimar Germany whose works (like their personal lives) were suffused with drugs, decadence and polysexuality. This rare book has its origins around series of dance events performed by the couple in 1922 and consists in part of a number of Expressionist poems related to those evenings. However, the book is far more than that; and is really a 'gesamskunstwerk' ('total work of art') of drug suffused, morbid, decadent and homo-erotic Expressionist poetry, prose and imagary. It also includes essays, stage designs for projected works and a series of extraordinary photographs commissioned from Madame D'Ora (Dora Kalmus). £40.00
