Handmade POSTER for Bukowski's First Known Poetry Reading
[Los Angeles] [1969] A hand-lettered poster @11" x 11" in black, red, and green inks for Bukowski's first known public readings at The Bridge bookstore, Los Angeles, on December 19 and 20, 1969. The text reads: "Charles Bukowski will give his first public demolition poetry reading at the Bridge," along with the address and dates. Accompanied by a handwritten letter dated 1994 from Bukowski's bibliographer, Sanford Durbin, describing in detail how acquired the poster at the time. In part: "At intermission I went out in the alley to pee; as I walked back in I saw someone peeing under a light; it was Hank. He looked at me & said kinda wimpy, 'Hi Neeli.' -- How many were there -- the Bridge, N. Kenmore? Maybe 50? A bar? a night spot? -- Maybe the sign was in front, maybe I saw it walking from the Bridge back to his place. On a utility pole. Sure I want it, down it came." Tears along edges, jagged, but without loss of any words. Very Good and an exceptional artifact from Bukowski's career, the only known example
