The Soap Opera

London: Trigram Press, 1967. Wide hardcover 4to bound in purple cloth boards, with blue cloth spine, and title silver foil stamped on front cover. Pages printed in black and white, with light green, red, and yellow accents. Laid inside dust jacket printed in red and black on red paper. 40 pp.

Heliczer’s poetry is here paired with handsome images by Paul Vaughan, Robert Harding Brown, Augusto Genina, Ferro, Wallace Berman, Jean-Jacques Lebel, Jack Smith, Andy Warhol, and Harold Chapman. One of Trigram’s most beautiful books and has somewhat of a cinematic feel to it, which given Heliczer’s background makes absolute sense.

Book very good with age toning to margins of endpapers and trace amounts of foxing to blank title page. Dust jacket with sunning, wear along top and bottom extremities including small tear along top left at front, and trace amounts of damp staining to spine extending onto back cover. Else very good.
