The Official Cockettes Paper Doll Book.

[SF: Last Gasp, 1971].

Item #SKB-6098

4to. Pamphlet. First edition. Drawings by John Flowers. Photographs by Clay Geerdes. Outrageous photographs of The Cockettes, a notorious LSD-inspired, hippie drag-queen theatrical group from San Francisco whose members also included women. These photos were intended to be cut out and made into paper dolls that could be dressed in their own outfits. This book was originally conceived as a souvenir book for their show at the Anderson Theater on the Lower East Side of NYC. The Cockettes' uninhibited performances were in sync with the cultural and social changes of the time and they achieved a cult following as well as much coverage from the mainstream media. Their stage appearance and theatrics anticipated the glam-rock scene that came into prominence later in the '70s. Very fine.
