TEUTONIC SCHMUCK NO. 7
"Our Press is not a business, it's a way of life."–Beau Geste Press slogan
Called "one of the most productive and influential publishing ventures of its generation," Beau Geste Press produced works "to protest rigid thinking, to engender a sense of community and to foster an international network of fellow travelers" (Higgie). Their eight-issue SCHMUCK periodical was a concrete example of their philosophy, bringing together concrete poetry, found objects, documentation of happenings, mail art, and many other genres together between two covers.
