        The Bosozoqu

      Dai-san Shokan 1980 - 1980 was not only the year that Kurata published his now well-known work Flash Up, for which he won Japan's prestigious Kimura Ihei award, but the year in which he contributed to this rare work about Japan's biker sub-culture, AKA the "Bosozoku". The book is filled with pictures of bike-gangsters, their bikes, their symbols, etc. The photographs are by Kurata (and three other lesser-known Japanese photographers), and certainly foreshadow his work in Flash Up. The book and original cover are in good condition, and this copy includes an extremely rare advertising sheet featuring upcoming titles from the same publisher, including "Ladies Bosozoqu", for which the publisher had been soliciting appropriate reader photos to include in same.

        Archive of Seven Original Color Cartoon Drawings]

      [New York] 1980 - Pen, pencil and colored ink on paper. Various sizes. Occasional marginal creases, "Kink Shop" has had one panel replaced. Overall near fine. Includes three example of "Detective Noodles," three of "Bosko," and on of "One Day at the Kink Shop." At the time he helped launch PUNK in 1975, John Holmstrom was studying cartooning under Will Eisner and Harvey Kurtzman at the School of Visual Art and Holmstrom's background helped define the look and feel of PUNK from the start. The first issue, with Holmstrom's indelible Lou Reed cover, set the pace. As Jon Savage described: "Its cover story was an interview with Lou Reed about his current record METAL MACHINE MUSIC, but, instead of a photo, there was a wickedly accurate cartoon of Reed as metal man: the feature inside was not typeset but told in fumetti. 'I wanted to see something new in comics,' says Holmstrom, 'it fitted the music. Johnny Ramone would always wear cartoon logo T-shirts.' In issue number one of PUNK, the surrounding artwork is as important as important as Reed's insults [.] When the interviewers follow Reed down the block, there they are in cartoons. The effect was both immediate and distanced, a formal innovation on par with MAD magazine" (ENGLAND'S DREAMING p. 132). This fumetti technique (which Holmstrom almost certainly picked up from Kutzman's HELP! magazine) would be utilized throughout PUNK'S tenure and was one of its signatures. Indeed, the comic served in no small part as the blueprint for the visual vocabulary of the magazine. And in addition to Holmstrom, the periodical was a valuable forum for underground comix as well, publishing R. Crumb and Bobby London. Working alone and in various collaborative combinations (with associate editor Bruce Carleton, contributing editor Ken Weiner, and "den mother" Pat Ragan), Holmstrom's cartoons graced the majority of the magazine's covers, and various strips were a PUNK staple. By late 1979, however, PUNK Magazine had slipped into "hiatus" for financial reasons. So Holmstrom, Ragan, Carleton, and Weiner tried to come up with comic strip ideas they might be able to sell "to keep us solvent." The original strips here offered are in part the result of these efforts. Three examples are from Holmstrom's most recognizable creation, "Bosko," who appeared in various periodicals throughout the early 80's, including the Village Voice, the East Village Eye, High Times, and elsewhere. Another three are from the "Detective Noodles" series, a satire of the hard-boiled private detective (one of which appeared in STOP #3). The final example, "One Day At The Kink Shop," appears to be a one-off. Aside from the one strip, we have been unable to determine if any others have appeared in print. Nonetheless, a vivid selection of original comic art from the end of the first decade of punk, from one of its cornerstone artists and key figures. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Two Holographic Poems. Metaphor: Like: = I [&] II

      1980 - A two-part poem penned by Gregory Corso for his friend Fred Martin, Managing Editor at New Directions. Apocryphally at least, Corso "writ out" the poem for Martin at a bibulous evening at one of New York's watering holes. In his time at New Directions, Martin worked with Corso, as well as Allen Ginsberg, Tennessee Williams, William Carlos Williams, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. "Metaphor" is a variation on Corso's poem "Piffle", published in 1980 -- the same year the poem was "writ out for Fred Martin." Shortly thereafter, following the assassination of John Lennon, the poem was reworked and retitled "For John Lennon." Corso's practice seems to have been constantly to re-write, revise, and recycle his poems, perhaps to fit the occasion.

        Documents on Australian Defence and Foreign Policy 1968-1975

      Self published 1980 - An extremely rare book that has accumulated a little history of its own. Munster and Walsh braved the fury of the Australian Government, and following the book's publication, the Government issued an interim injunction to ban the book, citing both the Crimes act and the Copyright act. Copies of the first edition, of which this is one, were impounded and they even went as far as to also seize the print runs of newspapers that reproduced extracts. The Government seemed especially uncomfortable with certain details in the book, dealing with Australia's involvement with the Indonesian invasion of East Timor. An extremely important work. Size: Octavo (standard book size). Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. Dust Jacket is in very good condition, without tears or chips or other damage. Dust Jacket un-clipped. Edges very slightly spotted or marked. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

        POPism: The Warhol Sixties (Signed by Andy Warhol)

      New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1980. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. This is a signed first edition, first printing of POPism: The Warhol Sixties published by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York in 1980. POPism is based in part on the endless reels of audio tape that Warhol obsessively recorded after acquiring a portable tape deck in the mid-60s. Warhol reminisces about his career and the minutiae of his life, discussing with equal emphasis going out to dinner with friends and making the switch from advertising to art--first with paintings, including his instantly recognizable Campbell\'s soup can, and then silkscreen, the period that produced both his Marilyn Monroe and Disaster series. Commenting on the book, Andy Warhol wrote, This is my personal view of the Pop phenomenon in New York is the 1960s. In writing it, Pat Hackett and I have reconstructed the decade, starting in 1960 when I began to paint my first Pop canvases. It\'s a look back at what life was like then for my friends and me... Measuring approximately 10 inches by 8 inches, the book is a hard cover bound in dark gray/ black cloth with a photographically illustrated dust jacket that has not been price clipped. The book and the dust jacket are in FINE condition. The book is protected by a mylar cover. The book is boldly signed on the first free endpaper by Andy Warhol
