ATTALI, Marc and Jacques DELFAU. Les Erotiques du Regard.
Les Erotiques du Regard. (Paris): Andre Balland, 1968. First edition. Quarto. ‘The Erotics of the Gaze is a frank meditation on the male gaze, an essay in pictures and a kind of concrete poetry where typography has equal status with the imagery. The book is full of snatched images of women in public – on the streets and in cafes – voyeuristically focusing on their bodies – primarily legs. It is a thoughtful book that concentrates on looking, it engages and disengages with the erotic in an interesting, thoroughly ambiguous, complex and tantalizing way – Parr and Badger’, Vol I, p226. A good copy, pages a little pulled at spine, in photographic boards, lacking the clear acetate dust jacket as usual.
