Angel Hair Books, 1969. Item #3273
Side-stapled wrappers. Cover by George Schneeman. This is from the regular trade edition of 474 copies from a total edition of 500. "O My Life! with cover (based on a risqué Polaroid of the author) by George Schneeman is a fast little book with journalesque pieces composed at 33 St. Mark's Place. The poems seem influenced in part by Philip Whalen, Joe Brainard, and Sei Shonagon's Pillow Book." (The Angel Hair Anthology, p. 605) This copy has the front cover also on the back rather than the more common red rear cover. Slightly mis-jogged before stapling, the bottom staple just misses the skewed back cover. See photos. Slightly toned at fore-edge front and back, signed by the poet on the title page.
