Moving. Bernadette Mayer. Angel Hair Books. 1971.


Angel Hair Books, 1971. Item #1128

Stapled wrappers. Cover by Ed Bowes, drawings by Rosemary Mayer. This is from an edition of 700 copies with a special edition of 26 lettered and signed by the poet. Bernadette Mayer writes, "Moving was written as an attempt to write only when absolutely necessary. I was certain I didn't want to write out of a desire for a job, something to do, or, worse, love of being an artist. So whenever I felt compelled, I would type a page or so and put them on top of my desk…One day Anne Waldman came to visit and saw all the papers and decided to publish them." (The Angel Hair Anthology, p. 590.) This is from the regular edition. Very good with light shelf wear.
