Our reprint of this classic is issued in conjunction with the traveling exhibition "Joe Brainard: A Retrospective." In 1970, Angel Hair Books published the first edition of I Remember—700 copies that quickly sold out. Brainard wrote two subsequent volumes for Angel Hair, More I Remember (1972) and More I Remember More (1973), both of which proved as popular as the original. In 1973, the Museum of Modern Art published Brainard's I Remember Christmas, a new text for which he also contributed a cover design and four drawings. Excerpts from the Angel Hair editions appeared in Interview, Gay Sunshine, The World, and The New York Herald. In 1975, Full Court Press jumped at the chance to issue a revised version, which collected all three of the Angel Hair volumes and added new material, using the original title I Remember. The most recent edition was published by Viking Penguin in 1994.
