These three issues of the legendary art and poetry journal are part of nine total issues published by artist Wallace Berman between 1955 and 1964. Today very rare collector’s items, they were printed in extremely small runs, distributed to only a handful of Berman’s friends and collaborators, and contain work by some of the most important artists and poets of the time. With this acquisition, Special Collections now holds six of the nine issues.
