The first edition of this remarkable artist’s book. Via photographs, diary entries, and collaged ephemera, Burke documented refugee camps, evacuation sites, and daily life on the Cambodian-Thai border. He also managed to photograph Khmer Rouge soldiers at work. The scrapbook-like “gonzo layout is entirely appropriate to the content of the book” [which reflects] the mad experience of travelling in Southeast Asia, while still reflecting on what it all means” (Roth p. 258). A beautiful copy. Folio. Shipping/handling will be extra; please keep this in mind when ordering.
