Hot.

Telephone Books, 1977. Item #2791

Saddle-stitched wrappers. Cover drawing by Chip Elwell, and back cover attributed to “Bernadette” [Mayer] (pictured right). Supported by a National Endowment for the Arts grant.


Joe Johnson participated in the Umbra Workshop, and his poems here — many erotic, echoing the cover — are deeply embedded in New York City.


This is from an edition of 750 copies, of which 26 are lettered A to Z and signed by the poet and cover artist. Regular edition, with minor shelfwear to back cover and rusting at staples; near fine.

Price: $25.00
