BEARD, Peter. The Last Word from Paradise.
(Tokyo): Seibu Museum of Art, 1979. First edition. Quarto. Scarce volume published to coincide with the major exhibition The Last Word From Paradise held at the Seibu Museum in Tokyo in April and May of 1979. With the characteristic collage elements from his other works mostly absent from this production, the spotlight here is on Beard’s black-and-white images of wildlife enacting their Darwinian struggle for survival on their home turf. The book contains numerous black and white illustrations with several double gate-fold plates. The text is in Japanese. A near fine copy in dust jacket.
