A very unusual one for me but it has the Losfeld connection, the bibliographical description is courtesy of Patrick Kearney’s, Scissors and Paste site, and without wishing to take issue with his description, there are (in my copy at least) 7 illustrations, one is repeated twice “Le dialectique du Maitre et de l’Esclave“, also if you count the “Fin” that makes 8 illustrations. The book was published originally published clandestinely during the war, and again clandestinely in 1955 by Losfeld.
[THIRION, André.] – Le Grand ordinaire. n.p., n.d. [c. 1955.] 8vo. pp. 123. Six illustrations by [Oscar Dominguez]. [ Dutel, 1676.] With the exception of the wrappers, a facsimile reprint of the original edition of this surrealist work, first published secretly in 1943 by Robert J. Godet. The majority of the print run was seized by the Gestapo in 1944

Well, cubism and erotism does not match very well…
I know what you mean, but the 5th illustration down, seems vaguely familiar to me, I must have had too much to drink though.
