HYMN TO THE MIMEOGRAPH REVOLUTION

30.00

In this poem written on the occasion of his exhibition at Boo-Hooray, Ed Sanders celebrates the technology that made possible his self-published poetry journal, Fuck You / A Magazine for the Arts. The mimeograph, a non-industrial printing machine, and the direct predecessor to the photocopier, was invented in the late 19th century by Thomas Edison, but took 5 decades for it to make its way to the hands of the artists and poets who used it to produce and distribute their "un-publishable" works. In this broadside, printed on the mimeograph-incarnate Risograph Printer, Sanders speaks not only about the Mimeograph machine, but his publishers-in-arms, his band The Fugs, and the revolutionary climate of the 1960's.

Printed by Jon Beacham/The Brother In Elysium in a signed edition of 50.
