About This Item

New York: SZ/Press, 1984. First printing. 50 pp., 6 x 8 inches. Perfect-bound in printed wrappers. Introduction by Ira Cohen. Illustrated in black-and-white throughout. A lovely copy, essentially as new, inscribed.



A posthumously published collection of prose poems and calligraphy by the legendary musician, writer, visual artist, and publisher MacLise, associate of LaMonte Young, Jack Smith, George Brecht, and so many others, first drummer for the Velvet Underground. This, the “first copy,” is inscribed by Ira Cohen, author of the introduction, to Julian Beck and Judith Malina of the Living Theater, “Bringers of light.” (Cohen’s film Paradise Now: The Living Theater in Amerika documented their 1968 tour, and they remained close friends the rest of their lives.)

About Passages Bookshop

Passages Bookshop stocks fine, rare, and unusual books and graphic art, with a concentration on modern and contemporary literature and art (particularly poetry and the avant-garde), artist's books, fine printing, and the book arts. The successor to New York City's Bridge Bookshop (late 1980s), Passages opened in Albuquerque in 1994 and relocated to Portland, Oregon, in 1997. In November of 2015 we moved to a new retail shop and gallery centrally located in Portland's east side, two blocks north of the convention center, where we are typically open Thursday through Saturday from 12:00 to 6:00 pm, as well as by appointment or chance. Proprietor: David Abel, info@passagesbookshop.com
