Largely unknown photobook by Leif Grage (Danish photographer b. 1938), illustrated with b/w photographs and photo montage pictures from Copenhagen. Text in Danish. First (and only) edition. Leif Grage (B. 1938) did 2 selfpublished photobooks in the early 70’s of which this is the second, and contributed to the collective photobook “78 Foto” (around 1969), all very rare books, as well as the unique and extremely rare “Frøstrup sommeren 1970” a photobook documentary on a hippie experimental society in Denmark. Grage did a lot of (often uncredited) photographs for Rudolf Broby-Johansen’s books that reached a wide audience in Denmark in the 70’s and 80’s. Broby-Johansen called Grage “The Danish Heartfield”
