Telephone, no. 4. [1971].

Item #2606

Side-stapled mimeograph, 14 x 8.5 in. Cover by Lauren Owen. Back page drawing by Texas Moon, portraying a girl falling out of a chair with a copy of Telephone no. 4 flying askance. Edited by Maureen Owen, with special thanks to Lauren Owen, Harris Schiff, Rebecca Wright, and Larry Fagin.


This issue contains moments of unique mimeograph stenciling technique, such as Lewis Warsh’s signature in his “open letter”-style poem, as well as Gary Gach’s use of hand-drawn elements on the mimeograph stencil for his poem “Gentgeon.”

This copy belonged to Lauren Owen's mother, who writes on cover: "I received this in the mail, Nov. 1971, from Lauren + Maureen Owen, still living in New York City. It contains writings by both of them, and their friends, and Maureen was editor of this 4th issue, as for the preceding 3. Lauren did this cover." With a few ink dots on names in table of conts, and light rusting to staples, else near fine.
