Notes

First edition, first printing, casebound issue. A particularly fine example of this seminal artist's book, which interweaves text with collages and mail art. Ray Johnson (1927-1995) was a Neo-Dada artist loosely associated with the Fluxus movement. He was once described as "New York's most famous unknown artist" and the network of mail art he instigated in the 1960s still produces work under the banner of the New York School of Correspondence.
