Bruksanvisning for Symaskinen Singer Victoria.Stockholm: Kreberos, 1965. Near Fine. 8vo.; illustrated throughout in b+w; illustrated wrapper. First edition. One of 1,000 copies.
Instructional manual for the Singer Victoria sewing machine, re-imagined as a novel by Hodell, a former fighter pilot turned artist, experimental poet, and founder of Kreberos, a small, avant-garde publishing house. Hodell found the original version of the pamphlet,originally printed ca. 1890, in the attic of his wife's childhood home. As an artist, he was loosely affiliated with Fluxus and his reworking of late 19th century graphic style recalls George Maciunas, who was similarly fixated on the era.
