Second issue of arguably the most important document to emerge from the L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E movement, Andrews and Bernstein's journal published some 16 issues (13 issues proper, plus various supplements) from 1978 through 1981. With its austere production and design (by Bernstein's wife Susan Laufer/Bee), in many ways the clearest expression of the aesthetic and the moment the movement fully matured. Contributors to this issue include Roland Barthes, Bob Perelman, Ron Silliman, Ted Greenwald, and others. Fewer than 200 copies printed. [Clay and Phillips, 235].
