Mountain Ecstasy - Penny Slinger & Nik Douglas
Penny Slinger & Nik Douglas
Dragon's Dream, 1978 (Paris)
1st edition, softcover
First edition of this 1978 astonishing collage book by Penny Slinger ("An exorcism") and Nik Douglas. A rare and sought after book of this amazing artist which features hundreds of deeply psychedelic and erotic collages combined with poetry.
An outrageous book which was subsequently seized and destroyed by British customs upon its release for 'pornography'. Rare. In good condition with signs of aging, small creases.
'Mountain Ecstasy' was my celebration of tantric alchemy, freed from any restrictions, out of the confines of the house and into the wide-open Technicolor landscapes of the high Himalayas. I never really thought of the collages as being material for a book - as they were rather outrageous - but Dragon's Dream wanted to publish."
