LA DOLCE VITA (1959) Promotional Book$1,500.00
Promotional book, square small folio, 13 x 12″ (33 x 31 cm.). Pictorial wrappers, 20 unnumbered pages, very slight creasing of pages near spine, minute stains to front cover, but JUST ABOUT FINE. Rizzoli: Milan, 1959.
A sumptuous English-language book for this Federico Fellini classic, with five double-page illustrations of scenes from the film, drawn by Fabricio Clerici. The final leaf is a colophon page, which indicates that this book was printed in an edition of 300 numbered copies, though this copy is not numbered.
The book has a very elegant layout; pages of text and lists of scenes intermingle with line drawings, also by Clerici. I have never encountered this book before, and OCLC does not list a single copy of it.
