Merrick, NY: Cross-Cultural Communications, 2010. Limited First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. Hand-lettered & signed by A.D. Winans. "Here, in a clear language that "hangs tough" while tipping toward the lyrical, A.D. Winans delivers another surprise. In his life as a poet he has given us the working class blues, poems of protest, the world of jazz, and surrendered to the elegiac, honoring those creative artists, who, like himself, cared little for safe and sane poetics. Now he comes at us with a book of love that echoes far back in time." (from Foreword by Neeli Cherkovski, pg. 7) A chapbook of love poems by A.D. Winans, the venerable bard at the center of the Beat Generation, the several San Francisco Renaissances & beyond. With a foreword by Winans' colleague & friend, the primary Baby Beat Generation- Second San Francisco renaissance poet Neeli Cherkovski. An exceptionally beautiful production with exquisite pasted-in illustrations by Norman J. Olson on front cover & throughout; photograph of Winans by Peter Onstad on back cover. One of 26 hand-lettered copies signed by the poet, this is copy "P." A superb gem of art & poetry; a most rare collectible in the prolific Winans canon. In very fine condition with only a tiny amount of wear & a few miniscule bumps at edges & corners of front, back covers & stapled spine; a few short, faint scratches near lower right corner of front cover; otherwise substantially mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #3473]
