Hand Printed Card. Herbert Huncke.

Hand Printed Card

Amsterdam, Netherlands: Neptune Books and Music/Suzanne Hines Lodder, 1995. Peter Jonckheere. Limited Edition. Card. Signed by Herbert Huncke; also hand-numbered, signed & dated by illustrator Peter Jonckheere. This is one of only eighty hand-designed & printed cards created to celebrate the eightieth birthday of Beat legend Herbert Huncke in 1995, the year before his death. Huncke had been invited to the Netherlands by Suzanne Hines Lodder to read from his works & celebrate this milestone. Of the eighty cards produced, according to Ms. Lodder, "...Mr. Huncke ruined about 10 of them when he spilled a glass of red wine on them," so these are very rare mementos of the occasion. Each was signed by Huncke, as well as hand-numbered, signed & dated by the illustrator, local artist Peter Jonckheere. This is #55/80. A beautiful, extremely scarce & collectible item in very fine condition. Very Fine. [Item #1623]
