DWANG: Number One (2009)

ISBN: 9780955340239
London, England: Tangerine Press, 2009. Limited Lettered First Edition. Hardcover. Signed by Douglas Blazek. “You have the first DWANG in your hands. This should be a good thing. The intended definition of ‘dwang’ is a NZ/Scots word for a noggin in a stud wall. If you are holding an old man’s cock, then you are holding the wrong definition.” (from Afterword “What We Talk About When We Talk About DWANG” by Michael Curran). Dedicated to notorious junkie, poet, and cult-favorite literary outlaw William Wantling, issue number one of DWANG--from London’s esteemed Tangerine Press--is a sight to behold. Executed with craftsmanlike care and impressive editorial acumen, DWANG is a collector’s delight. It is a monumental new literary anthology featuring previously unpublished poetry, prose and artwork by Charles Plymell, Douglas Blazek, Billy Childish, A.D. Winans, Gerald Locklin, William Wantling and many more. Beautifully designed and printed by Michael Curran, this particular copy is among the limited, lettered run within the first edition (“T/Z,” or “20/26”). Additionally, it is signed by underground mimeo-revolution legend Douglas Blazek at colophon. Signature in blue pen ink reads: “Douglas Blazek.” DWANG No. 1 (as well as its brother and sister issues, Dwang No. 2 & No. 3) are absolutely exquisite productions and the dominion of the discerning collector. In very fine condition, virtually as new and with publisher’s protective mylar, as issued. Very Fine. [Item #4317]
