Condition: Excellent- wraps rather creased, with light toning within, else a clean and very good example of this RARE piece (see pics).
Provenance: Private Collection, Paris
Note: Before the leap into the void, Klein was an accomplished practitioner of Judo. His achievement of a fourth degree black-belt at the age of 25 was a highly unusual accomplishment for a Westerner. Tarpaulin and photo-montage aside, it is difficult not to believe that this training was incorporated into his "Leap Into the Void" four years after the publication of this issue of this French popular science magazine, which features a 9 page article about Judo with black and white illustrations, some of which feature Klein. The cover of the journal is also illustrated with a color photograph of Klein holding his opponent in the void.
