images may be added again at some stage - too many images "stolen" and used uncredited without any notice. Will rethink the whole project - password protected access may be an option, paid subscribing another or taking it completly offline also thinkable. But still undecided...

Softcover, edition of 300 copies
Emilie Comes to me in a Dream : A facsimile of Jındřıch Štyrský's handmade artist book from 1933 - originally published in an edition of 69 numbered examples.
300 copies have been carefully reproduced matching the original materials with the highest quality contemporary substrates.
This includes 10 hand tipped in images reproduced as quad-prints and the text translated into English.
As is the case with the original book - the images are glued to a card stock which are folded into and placed into the cover materials. There is no binding and all sheets are loose. (Mörel books)
Štyrský believed that in pornography he had found a destabilizing medium that could be used to subvert established social and artistic norms. The culmination of Štyrský’s involvement with pornography was the release of his erotic masterpiece, Emilie Comes to Me in a Dream, in Prague in May 1933. (ubu gallery)
