Art-Rite, numbers 1-21 complete (with a facsimile of no. 21)

New York: Art-Rite Publishing Co., 1973-1978. Newsprint with self covers. All issues roughly letter size. Normal condition is browned at the edges with some signs of handling. No. 21, the virtually unobtainable final issue, is a facsimile. The original consisted only of a cover, with no contents. Judy Rifka decorated each copy with a unique work of art. Gwen Allen’s Artists’ Periodicals states (pp. 144-45) that there were 2000 copies of this issue, but try to find one. The facsimile, produced from a copy in Judy Rifka’s archive, with her enthusiastic participation, is printed in color on hot-pressed silkscreen paper, like the original. No. 3 is a vintage photocopy with single sheets stapled through the left edge and the title hand-stamped in red, as issued by Art-Rite when the printed issue ran out. No. 13 occurs in two variations: title in black and red; only the black version is present here. No. 16 never appeared. The covers of nos. 18 and 19 each bear a library stamp and label (legitimate withdrawals). No. 19 is a joint issue of Art-rite and LAICA Journal, with the red-and-white label pasted over the original title on the front cover. No. 20 is a musical score titled “Pearl Girl: an operetta,” a libretto by Demi. Only the more distinctive covers are scanned. Extra shipping will be required for overseas shipment. Item #68802
