About This Item

New York: Diane Di Prima, 1963. Softcover. Good. Magazine. (32)pp. Single sheets printed both sides and secured with a staple. Folded once for mailing with a cancel, stamp and ink address. Some of wear at the extremities with splash marks, "discard" stamp and lacking the final sheet, good. An influential mimeograph created by di Prima and LeRoi Jones featuring some of the most important poets of the 20th Century. Unlike other magazines, this so-called "newsletter" was distributed via a mailing list, many of which were noted poets, journalists, critics, publishers and artists. For this reason, most copies were hand addressed or affixed with a mailing label and stamp, and folded for mailing. This copy is addressed to poet Carol Bergé. An issue is guest edited by William [Bill] Linich, later known as Billy Name, who was a friend of Andy Warhol, as well as di Prima. Linich became the primary photographer at The Factory after Warhol starting making films, including "Billy Linich's Party" which is reviewed in this issue by John Daley. Additional contributors include Philip Whalen, Ray Johnson, Alan Marlowe, and Michael Rumaker.
