POST, Frederic. Anonymous Engravings on Ecstasy Pills.

[Switzerland]: Boa Books, 2009.  First edition.  Octavo.  Unpaginated.  Amazing book duplicating 511 designs that Post found on ecstasy pills.  The volume provides a unique documentation of the designs adopted by the manufacturers to identify and advertise their product.  Produced secretly, consumed at night or destroyed by the police, but for Post this important typography of youth culture would be lost forever.  This is a near fine copy in cream cloth with the endpaper unfolding to reveal a dizzying array of the pill-sized designs, embossed in a grid. Published in an edition of 500 copies and long since disappeared.
