"[O]ne of the most experimental of all the early mimeo magazines" (Clay and Phillips) that "can now be located at the beginnings of the Language and performance poetry movements" (Aarons and Roth). Mayer's and Acconci's publication occupies a unique position in the Mimeo Revolution, straddling the worlds of experimental poetry, conceptual art, Fluxus, and graphic design. Contributors to this fifth issue include Sol LeWitt, Robert Smithson, Clark Coolidge, Adrian Piper, Hannah Weiner, and Kenneth Koch. With print runs rarely exceeded 200, one of the scarcest of the major mimeos. [Clay and Phillips 207-07]. [Aarons and Roth 33-37].
