In The Nam What Can Happen? Illustrated by George Schneeman.

N.Y. Granary Books, 1997. First edition. Limited to 70 copies printed letterpress from magnesium plates on Rives 300 gm paper by Philip Gallo at The Hermetic Press, signed by the artist, of which 50 copies were for sale. A beautiful "simulation" of a one-of-a-kind collaborative book made by Berrigan and Schneeman in 1967-68. "The original was passed back and forth for about a year, remaining in the hands of one or the other for weeks or even months at a time - poet and artist each adding, subtracting, working over words and images. The materials used were pen & ink, white acrylic paint and collage. The work was made primarily for the amusement of the collaborators." As new. Square 4to, loose sheets in clear plastic slipcase.

Price: $1,000.00
