Hot Footsteps.

Telephone Books, 1976. Item #2782

Saddle-stitched wrappers. Cover by Bill Duckworth. Typesetting by Ed Hogan at Aspect Composition in Somerville, MA. On the back cover is a photograph of the poet that is unattributed (pictured above). Funded by a grant from the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines via the New York State Council of the Arts. Lewis Warsh and Charles North are thanked in dedication. 


Hartman, who emigrated from Tokyo in 1958, writes poems with long lines; they stretch pleasingly across the horizontal format of this book.


This is from an edition of 750 copies, of which 26 are lettered A to Z and signed by the poet and cover artist. This is letter "L," stamped in green ink—a small spot of which appears to have been transferred to front cover. Sight rusting at staples, else fine.

Price: $75.00
