GOLDSMITH, Kenneth and Joan La Barbara

73 Poems

Brooklyn: Permanent Press, 1993. No. 374 from an edition of 1,000; though not strictly called for, this copy signed by Goldsmith and La Barbara to rear flap. [18], 79, [7] pp; illus. 8vo; perfect-bound in French-fold stiff card wraps. Compact disc mounted to slits in front flap. Very near fine, with mild toning to spine and perimeters of front cover, some rubbing to the flap hinges. CD with a few minor scuffs, nothing to impede playability.

A sequence of visual texts by UbuWeb founder and experimental poet Kenneth Goldsmith, in which, as described in Geoffrey Young's introduction, the "bold type of one page is carried over to the next page, but screened to gray, with new bold type printed over it," thus lending the minimal arrangements of letters and words a further degree of orthographic abstraction. Texts offset printed in tan, grey, and black. Introductions by Ellen F. Saltpeter, Geoffrey Young, John Schaefer, Robert Mahoney, and Joan La Barbara. With an audio CD containing La Barbara's interpretations of Goldsmith's texts.
