Klitorisbilder. Wir machen uns ein bild von uns.

Hamburg: Lesbenverlag Wir, 1978. XLarge size calendar shaped publication (60 x 42 cm), 60 pages, printed on one side and of which 4 text pages with text illustrations + numerous photographic illustrations. Illustrted front wrapper.

- First edition of this remarkable and rare photographic document of womens/lesbian liberation. A loosley inserted flyer prints the following text: " Klitorisbilder.Wir machen uns ein Bild von uns. Wir sind vier Lesben. Unsere Gruppe ist entstanden, als eine von uns beim Onanieren merkte, daß sie sich kein klares Bild von ihrer eigenen Klitoris machen konnte. Sie versuchte, sie zu zeichnen, und kam schließlich darauf, sich zu fotografieren. Einige Tage später zeigte sie uns die Bilder. Wir fanden es unheimlich aufregend, eine Klitoris aus dieser Perspektive so vergrößert zu sehen. Keine von uns konnte sich erinnern, jemals ein Bild von einer Klitoris gesehen zu haben. Wie wohl unsere eigene aussah? Marianne konnte es nicht glauben: "Ganz anders als meine Klitoris. Ihr habt sicher den Apparat falsch gehalten." Erst als eine weitere Frau Fotos von sich machte, war sie überzeugt. Wieder anders. Wir standen in der Dunkelkammer und konnten uns vor Freude über jedes neue Foto kaum einkriegen. "Deine Klitoris sieht ja aus wie'n Herz. Und wie das überall glänzt." "Meine sieht eher aus wie'n Ei im Eierbecher." "Bei den Haaren muß ich an Dünengras denken." Allmählich haben wir uns in immer mehr Formen wiedergefunden, beim Gang über den Markt, am Meer, im Wald - überall in der Natur. Bald fingen wir auch an, unsere Klitoris in Ton zu formen. Durch dieses plastische Nachfüh¬len kamen wir zu einer noch intensiveren Wahrnehmung von uns selbst. Wir spüren immer mehr, wie sich unser ganzes Selbst¬bild verändert: wir werden selbst-bewuß-ter.

1909 PLEM 1959.

Maastricht: Provinciale Limburgsche Electriciteits Maatschappij, 1959. Square quarto, 154 pags, 136 photographic illustrations in b/w and 7 in color plus11 b/w illustrations and 35 in color. Yellow blind stamped cloth. Color illustrated wrappers. Wrappers with small repair on top of front wrapper, otherwise a very fine copy. Book design Dick Elffers and B. Duyvelshoff. (MT pages 6, 7, 152, 153 and no 80, page 252)

- First edition. This book is featured in MT’s study on Dutch post war Company books as one of the best. There is here indeed a perfect marriage here between photographer, designer and subject matter that results in a book very much reminiscent of a standard that is set in the pre-war designs of Piet Zwart and Paul Schuitema. We see a frequent use of tinted color planes that are laid over existing black an white images, and a frequent use of integrated montage elements also. All statistic information is printed on a different colored stock. An informative and truly convincing cooperative work. Loosly laid in the folded presentation note of the book signed (in print) by director H. Gelissen.
