Quelques Poèmes / Some Translations / Some Bombs.

N.p., 1963. Item #1990




Printed folio with 25 leaves, 8 1/2 x 11 in. Padgett self-published this work in mimeographed loose sheets to allow the reader to rearrange the poems and pictures at will. Three full-page illustrations, as well as the cover, were created by Joe Brainard and printed on cardstock as part of the portfolio presentation of the work. This is no 71 from an edition of 100 numbered copies. The text is presented in three 6-part sections, each preceded by a Brainard "collage drawing" and a title page. The first section includes the poems by Reverdy in French, the second, Padgett's translations, and the third, his "mis-translations." Though not called for, this copy is signed by the poet. The cover is somewhat age toned along the spine with several shallow bends. The interior pages are fine. Scarce.
