Offered here is the uncommon, extremely hard-to-find true first edition published in wraps. A much more common second edition came (1966) as hardcover, disregarding this also being a ‘flip-book’. Largely unknown, very special book on the amusement park ‘Tivoli’ in Copenhagen. A very fine photo book profusedly illustrated with Jesper Høms excellent photographies, among them some of his most famous, AND a ‘flip book’ t.i a book with a series of pages where each page shows a slightly different phase of a motion, in this case ‘Pjerrot’ : ‘Flick your thomb from page 176 – and see the Pierrot Film’ as it says on the inner cover. It is one the best and most well executed Danish photobooks from the period with some of the best photography also. First edition. Very rare, especially with slipcase
