(Item ID: 20470)

Late issue of this seminal publication of the Mimeo Revolution, one of the most influential little magazines of the 1960s. Distributed by mailing list, FB served as an important venue for the poets of the Beat and New York schools, as well as other experimental and avant garde writers of the decade. From issue 28 on, the mag included pictorial covers from artists such as Jess Collins (this issue), George Hermas, Wallace Berman, and others. Contributors to this issue include Robert Duncan and John Wieners; notably the latter's "Song Lyric for 'Shoot the President,'" which was, according to the editors' notes, an unfinished musicalm whose authors would have been Di Prima, Wieners, and Joel Oppenheimer; it was never finished, as it was "dropped after someone shot the president of the U.S." [Clay and Phillips pp. 74-75]. [Anderson and Kinzie 699-700].
