extensions no. 1 (1968 avant garde literary journal)
Softcover 8vo, 96pp, stapled wrappers. Very Good with some discoloration to the wraps; contents clean and unmarked. The first issue of the avant garde literary publication of concrete poetry, performance scripts, collaborations (Ron Padgett and George Schneeman), works in translation and other writings by some of the period’s most influential artists and writers (published at the height of Vito Acconci and Bernadette Mayer’s complementary “0 TO 9”). Also includes found “Graffito poems”--translated & transcribed texts graffitied on the walls of the Sorbonne during the student uprising in May 1968. An exciting document of intersecting art and literary culture from the time.
