Politics (inscribed). Kathy Acker.

Politics (inscribed)

[New York]: Papyrus Press, 1972. The author's exceptionally rare first book, inscribed on the flyleaf to her close friend, lesbian poet Lynn Lonidier (1958-1993), "Dear Lynn, With all love and thanks, Kathy." Title and author in black on heavy black card stock, stapled through the edge and finished off with black cloth tape. [29] pp. + 2 leaves of decorated Florentine paper. The sheets were printed two pages per leaf and then folded backwards and bound at the open edges, so that the fold faces out, similar to typical Japanese bindings, but with a very different effect. 21.8 x 18.2 cm. The exposure of the scan has been adjusted to make the title and binding a little visible, but the book in real life is black, black. Four light spots on front cover; otherwise fine. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order. Item #80051
