PIOMBO, Akbar del. The Boiler Maker.

(New York and Paris): Citadel Press and Olympia Press, 1961.  First edition.  Paperback original.  Unpaginated. Issued as part of the the ‘Far-Out Book’ series.  The author’s third collage novel.  A witty critique of the modern art world’s susceptibility to gimmickry and jargon that also casts a mordant eye on the schlock-blockbuster syndrome afflicting the (Hollywood) film industry.  Illustrations by Norman Rubington.  A very good copy in printed wrappers.
