Erotoscope : 3 models, 26568 combinations to try!

In 1970 Marie Concorde Publisher released an amusing book  : Erotoscope. Designed by Raymond Abigeo and Jean-Claude Peretz (the latter is also known for his involvement in another curiosa photographic book, Mademoiselle 1+1 which recounts the day of a  nymphet in Camargue), the book proposes to dress and undress, according to one's fancy, three models by a sytem of pages divided in four horizontal bands. The book is of the most refreshing and immerses us in the fashion of that day : metallic dresses like ones designed by Paco Rabanne, black large belts falling on hips, crew socks. A book, literally, to strip.

Currently, the librairie Loliée offers :
  • [CURIOSA] ABIGEO (Raymond) -  PERETZ (Jean-Claude). Erotoscope. Paris, Marie Concorde Editeur, 1970, in-4, reliure spiral binding, hard illustrated cover. First edition.
