Cambridge M'ass : for John Batki : for Anselm Hollo.

Tuumba Press, 1979. Item #2875

 Poster, 41 x 49 in. The original Tuumba Press edition of this "poster-poem-map" that marks Robert Grenier's turn toward the visual in a stunning work comprising approximately 255 short poems, some excerpted from his 1978 work Sentences. The size of the poster was determined by the largest sheet-size the offset press would accommodate. Cambridge M'ass is dedicated to John Batki and Anselm Hollo and was pinned to the walls of poets and others across the literary world throughout the eighties and beyond and has become quite scarce in the original. The poem is bright and clean with assorted small brown spots to lower third and upper left side. Verso: tide marks to left side, upper half of poster is evenly toned, 2 in. water stain. Pinholes to four corners, light edgewear, and occasional wrinkles.
