Restau: A Journal of Passage, no. 1.

1971. Item #3406

Perfect bound wrappers. In 1969, John Mark Nunnelee had just returned from Vietnam and sought to become a bookdealer and publisher. In 1970, he published the sole issue of Restau: A Journal of Passages, drawing upon work by his friends and correspondents including Diane di Prima, Gerrit Lansing, Thomas Meyer, Jack Myers, Richard Grossinger, Charles Stein, Robert Kelly, Stephen Jonas, Carol Weston, David Schaff, and others. Notably, Restau featured an ambitious thirty-page excerpt by Diane di Prima of what would later become known as Spring and Autumn Annals, only recently published in 2021 by City Lights Books. Beyond the magazine, Restau Press published a pamphlet by Stephen Jonas and several poetry broadsides by Gerrit Lansing, Stephen Jonas, John Wieners, and Larry Eigner.
