Contents






Four pages, 8 1/2 x 14; photocopy of John Clellon Holmes’ “The Philosophy of the Beats,” from the June, 1983 issue of Esquire. Also includes a photo taken in Fargo, N.D., and including Shig, Ginsberg, Snyder, Rexroth, Corso, Mirian Patchen, Joanne McClure, and an unidentified woman.



8 1/2 x 17 1/2, two-sided collage mounted on cardboard. Collaboration with mail art enthusiast Alton Hunt, aka Lord Byron. A one-of-a-kind issue, I assume, as I have never run across a photocopied version.




Three pages, 8 1/2 x 14; photocopies of several articles on the Beats from Wire: The Jazz and New Music Magazine.



Five postcards featuring black and white photocopies of what appear to be water colors.



Five postcards, including three images of Campbell’s tomato soup cans, one of Brillo pad packaging, and one of Ginsberg wearing an American flag hat.


Four postcards featuring drawings of Kaufman, three hand colored.







Five postcards: Don Mosses drawing of Shig; Joe Zygaj water color; Mary Boyd Ellis wood block print; Chynthia Schafer etching of Washington Square Park; and Norman Quibeadeau’s psychedelic drawing,”Life Among the Cappuccino People.”


Four pages, 8 1/2 x 14; cover photos plus several articles on Duncan’s death and a San Francisco Chronicle obituary on S.F. printer Adrian Wilson.







Four pages, 8 1/2 x 14, New Common Good interview with Ginsberg, plus Ginsgerg’s photo of Shig at the Trieste.



I have found three different versions of #86. The only thing they have in common is that they are all on 8 1/2 x 14 paper and feature collages and poems presumably by Hunt, who died on June 12, 1993. Perhaps this is a memorial issue.
