Angel Hair Books, 1968. Item #535

Saddle-stitched wrappers. Cover by Jim Dine. This is from an edition of 500 copies. Signed by Padgett on the title page. Clark remembers: "Ron Padgett and I cooked up Bun in August 1967 in an empty outbuilding on Kenward Elmslie's property in the woods near Calais, Vermont … listening to our complete record collection (Canned Heat and The Rascals) while delightedly exploding our way out of the interesting monastic austerity of the backwoods scene by composing Bun, a sequence of big spacey typewriter poems that graphed themselves out like great aerated star-charts in front of us, constellated word-bursts generated by intense cabin-fever elation." (The Angel Hair Anthology, p. 579) Fine.
