Striking flyer for a Jan.
31st, 1966 reading by poet, actor, photographer and Warhol associate Gerard Malanga at Izzy Young's Folklore Center. Beautifully designed (almost certainly by Malanga himself) with two stills of Malanga and Debbie "High School Drop-Out" Caen taken from Andy Warhol's 1965 screentest of the pair (ST37), described on the flyer of a "'stillie' from Andy Warhol's BLACK TIE." Caen was Malanga's girlfrend at the time and the title subject of the poems, a series which remained unpublished until Malanga's NO RESPECT: NEW & SELECTED POEMS 1964-2000 (Black Sparrow).OCLC finds no copies, though Callie Angell locates one in a Warhol "time capsule" at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburg (#79). A scarce and handsome literary survival from the height of Factory-era NYC.
First Edition. (New York): Folklore Center, . Oblong 4to. offset broadside, 8.5" x 11". Printed recto only. Folded three times for mailing, mild toning. Else near fine. Recently archivally framed in unfinished maple, floated above warm white mat with spacer and under Plexiglas. Frame very fine.
