C Press, 1965. Item #1914 The cover image, procured from Warhol by Berrigan, is a two-frame repeated still derived from a Warhol film and printed using the Thermo- Fax machine.
Side-stapled legal-size mimeo, with 10 pages of text plus title page and Thermo-Fax cover by Warhol. Publisher Ted Berrigan altered the title on the book’s cover and title page—from Two Stories for Andy Warhol to 2 / 2 Stories for Andy Warhol—without the poet’s knowledge. The found text was excerpted from an early twentieth-century novel and is repeated on each page of the mimeographed book, reflecting the poet’s interest in appropriation and repetition.
Cover is detached from staples and there are residual chips and small holes on the left. There is a 3/4 in. closed tear to bottom edge. Interior pages are very good plus with a 3/8 tear to lower left portion of title page (see photos).
Together with the Warhol segment of the Thermo-Fax cover that measures 7 3/4 x 9 1/4 in. Autograph note in the hand of Ted Berrigan to verso, "A.W. Cover: Two Stories For Andy Warhol - by Ron Padgett. "C" Press 66? 65?" Lightly handled and with a few small tears and chips.
