MULLER, Wolfgang. Karat: Himmel uber St. Petersburg / Sky over St. Petersburg.

(Berlin / Tuscan): Vice Versa Verlag / Nazraeli Press, 2003. First edition. Small square quarto. Unpaginated. Powerful work in which Muller tell the stories of children and youths who live above the streets of St. Peterburg, in the roofs and attics of disused buildings. Many have escaped from apathetic parents or decaying orphanages, but the desolation of their situation is tempered with the warmth of the small family units they have formed. The title ‘Karat’ is the brand name of a shoe polish, containing solvents, that many of them inhale to escape the reality of the situation. A very good copy in a dust jacket. Some bumping to bottom corners.
