This week's short list of 9 new arrivals, mostly devoted to the visual arts, includes a signed Erté serigraph, a biblio-themed John Held Jr. poster, and a pamphlet with an early reference to the "robot."
This week's list is devoted to the beat poet Michael McClure, who unfortunately passed away just over a week ago. McClure wrote the internationally acclaimed play, The Beard, and attended San Francisco State College, where he studied with poet Robert Duncan. He gave his first poetry reading in the company of Allen Ginsberg in 1955.
"This place ought to be a must for any bibliophile passing through Salt Lake. Every time I've visited Ken's shop, I've left carrying out a book or two. Leonard Cohen music played the whole time I was there this afternoon—in memorium of the late great Mr. Cohen."
"Excellent international service. Fast and reliable with superb quality."
