The Blue Book.

Malanga, Gerard


Soft cover

Being a Series of Drafts and Fragments of Poems in the Rough. With Photographs by Wren de Antonis. Pictorial limp card wrappers. A few nicks to edges. Head of spine a little frayed. Unpaginated. *** Poems printed in a facsimile of Malanga’s handwriting, with printed negatives of photographs taken by Wren de Antonis. Number 273 of a limited edition of 300. ‘This edition consists of 300 copies hand bound and numbered the first 15 signed by the author…’ Slim Volume Series. *** Poet/photographer/film maker Gerard Malanga (b. 20 March, 1943) is probably best known for his collaboration with Andy Warhol in the period 1963-1970, but his solo work is also well worth exploring. His poetry is highly effective. This collection consists of short love poems; the photographs – head shots of a couple kissing and embracing – are a beautiful accompaniment to the poems.
