die geschichte eines photographen der sein leben suchte und die vergänglichkeit der puppen fand.

Ariel Pawlak’s Puppen Buch is an amazing, unexpected discovery. The book was published in 1971 by Verlag König Heidelberg. The dust jacket looks like a serigraph and is very fragile. The signature in the book suggests that the print run was limited to 900 copies. There is a strong visual connection to Japanese photography and photography books created around the same. After a single page of introduction there follow 41 pages of photographs placed uniformly on the right page. The introduction explains that Ariel Pawlak (aged 31 at the date of publication) worked for three years on the photographs of this publication.
A rare and wonderful gem.
