Different Dances

By Silverstein, Shel




Shel Silverstein is best known for his children's poetry, but "Uncle Shelby" was also a witty, dirty old man.  He began by drawing adult cartoons for the military during his stint as a soldier in the 1950s, and contributed to Playboy from 1957 to the mid-1970's.  This irreverant humor is reflected in his poems and books geared toward mature audiences.

Different Dances was published in 1979, and first editions in complete dust jackets are scarce.  This book is a rather large folio edition - over 12 - 15" tall.
