[BKARTS] Toot, toot



Now that you mention it. In 1972-73 I published a series of broadsides through Come!Unity Press, a now-infamous Anarchist collective. Each was 11" x 17" and, this being what it was, they were sold on a pay-as-you-wish basis, except for "Free Verse," which was the original for those listings of poetry readings and such they used to distribute for free around New York. The rest was poetry by me and my friends, as well as subway graffiti (again, probably some kind of a first), stuff you could read right-side up and upside-down, poems about muggers and junkies and medieval songs. One of them won a prize somewhere.

Not exactly ex-kwizit, though: they were offset, closer to posters than broadsides, with a lot of experimentation in color that's not allowed in your typical exploitative Capitalist sweatshop where...but I digress.
