(Paris): (Marie Concorde), (1970).

4to (270 × 210 mm), pp.[76] with a final leaf affixed to the rear board. 36 black-and-white photographs. With the exception of 2 dividing pages the leaves are cut in a series of horizontal strips. Spiral-bound in black-and-white photo-illustrated paper-covered boards, text in pink and black; light wear to edges, nicks to head of spine at joints strengthened, boards lightly toned and rubbed, light sunning to spine. Very good example of a fragile book.

First edition. This flip-book contains photographs of three female models, each depicted with twelve different hairstyles and outfits. The divided pages allow the viewer to arrange various combinations and states of dress and undress. The text on the rear cover declares: ‘Trois filles ensorcelantes!!! habillez-les ou deshabillez-les! selon vos goûts, votre humeur, au gré de votre fantasie. 26568 combinaisons possibles.

Jean-Claude Peretz was an advertising photographer, but the shrinking budgets that came as a result of the economic crisis of the 1970s convinced him to change profession, and he became an antiques dealer, later specialising in folk art.
