Ramon Tag

Copenhague: Berg, 7 Mai 1967
21 x 15cm, 1pp. Original carbon copy of a typed and signed letter from M Berg explaining that he was to publish a novel by a young Danish writer Vagn Lundbye. The letter asks if Ramon might be able to supply a cover illustration. The title of the novel is Morkespil (Game of Shadows).
The story is of soldiers on a raft in the sea trying to survive the elements, attacks from the air and even each other. Berg says that the Ramon Mobilisation image (see elsewhere) that Boltanski sent before would do but Berg would prefer to commission new work. He then points out that there is little time so a quick response would help.
