Regretfully, due to Covid-19, we have decided to cancel all fairs in April and May. The Edinburgh Premier Fair and the UK Fine Press Book Fair have been rescheduled for November. The Oxford Premier has also been rescheduled for October. Keep checking our website for updates.
Book Description
n.d. [197?] 28 x 21.5cm, pp. 12. Duck egg blue stapled wrappers, blue lettering and decoration to front wrapper. Three b/w photos, a leaf with a b/w illustration (by Nancy Pletos) and three loose printed leaves of poetry by Glen Mannisto and Dennis Teichman (both co-founders of Detroit River Press) laid-in: the illustration and poetry leaves appear to be proofs for Detroit River Press’ ‘48222: A Detroit Book of Poetry’ (1980). Faded, toned and lightly soiled, corners a little creased. A very good copy of an early offering from the printing co-operative based in Detroit’s Cass Corridor. Cover by Ann Mikolowski.
Dealer Notes
Includes contributions from Ted Berrigan, Gloria Dyc, and Arthur Pfister, amongst others: ‘ a cross-section of Detroit language activity, plus some guests from outside the community -- not a team of all-stars, just some brothers and sisters here with some instantaneous, simple spoken acts’ (Tysh, ‘an introduction’). Only one listing on WorldCat.
