A collection of 100 poems, spawned from a collaboration with Ann and Ken Mikolowski of the Alternative Press, who sent Berrigan 500 blank postcards that he could write on or do something to. The project grew, taking the form of a book of poems chronicling a year of his life written on the postcards, with inspiration and collaboration from a number of writers and artists, including Allen Ginsberg, Steve Levine, Eileen Myles, Anne Waldman, George Schneeman, Dick Jerome and Rosemary Mayer. One of Berrigan's final projects before his death in 1983, the book was edited by his widow Alice Notley. This copy Mikolowski's own copy, with a small slip of paper with his notes about the project laid in.
