We’re so thrilled to offer for sale a suite of four letterpress broadsides featuring unpublished poems by Jack Spicer, illustrated by Kevin Killian, Norma Cole, Paul Klinger, and Kyle Schlesinger!

When Julia devises a fundraiser, she goes for substance: the proceeds from sales of these broadsides will go to fund the printing of our first major art book, The Collages of Helen Adam, to be published with the help of The Poetry Collection of The University at Buffalo where Helen Adam’s papers are housed. Helen Adam was one of the participants in Spicer’s Poetry as Magic Workshop, and her collages made quite a splash in the recent Jess/Duncan exhibit.

The deluxe edition of this suite (SOLD OUT), includes a letterpress print of a crayon portrait of Billy the Kid by Norma Cole, who was (if you’re late to read Jarnot’s Robert Duncan bio) a familiar of the Jess/Duncan household, which power couple published the original chapbook of Spicer’s Billy the Kid under their Enkidu Surrogate imprint in 1959 while they were living in Stinson Beach. The Helen Adam art book will contain photos taken during this time, at the very house in fact.
