Bill Butler (1934-1977) was a significant figure of the British literary counterculture scene of the 1960s and 1970s, and from 1967 the founder and publisher of the Unicorn Bookshop in Brighton, often touted as England's answer to City Lights.

There was also a hardbound issue published in an impression of 136 copies: 26 copies lettered A to Z, 100 hardcover copies numbered and signed, and 10 hors commerce copies.
