Text engl. - Each of the 58 un-numbered pages is printed on a folded sheet, which is attached at the spiral end. "Against this symbol of the monster – representing all the mechanically hampering, all the technically frightening, all the mathematically imposing, influences in photography, we may set another symbol, one of even greater antiquity. This is the symbol of the Madonna." (From the introductory essay). - A lecture - and possibly a teaching influence - on American bad taste
