Item #2284 This. Broadside no. 1. Charles Olson.

This. Broadside no. 1.

Black Mountain, NC: Black Mountain College Graphics Workshop, 1952. First edition. Single sheet, folded twice, to form a vertical broadside with cover design and information on the exterior. With the original printed envelope, which reproduces the cover text on the broadside. Some fading to edges of broadside, as usually seen from the fugitive construction-type paper used; envelope a little worn.

Cover image hand-colored by Nicola Cernovich, this is a variant on green paper with a yellow and red sunburst-style design. See Katz, Black Mountain College, Experiments in Art, p. 274. Butterick & Glover A6, who state that thirty copies were printed, this is certainly incorrect as OCLC alone locates almost fifty copies. Item #2284
