Impressively executed facsimile of this essential artists' magazine, with details faithful to the original editions: one of the issues' front cover is silkscreened, another is a found vintage trade dust jacket, and a third is a crumpled sheet of white paper. "[O]ne of the most experimental of all the early mimeo magazines," (in the words of Steven Clay and Rodney Phillips), Mayer's and Acconci's publication straddled the worlds of experimental poetry, conceptual art, Fluxus, and graphic design. With original print runs rarely exceeding 350, this UDP edition was welcome, particularly as its reproductions are so faithful. Offered at the publisher's price.
