Saddle-stitched wrappers. Cover by Jim Dine. This is from an edition of 500 copies. Signed by Padgett on the title page. "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 usterity 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.
