Little flyer from a Ray Johnson show of collages. Received by the library in 1955. Note on the back suggests these were shown at Wittenborn’s One-Wall Gallery in 1952. A sad inductee into the Hall of Shame of past library stamping practices. —ds

These are some fun pics that I found in the Ted Joans papers (BANC MSS 99/244 z). Joans was a poet, jazz musician and artist who, alongside Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and Bob Kaufman, launched the jazz poetry movement in Greenwich Village/NYC, and was one of the main progenitors of the Beat Movement. Eventually settling in Tangiers, Morrocco, Joans also spent considerable amounts of time in Paris where he came to know the likes of the writer James Baldwin and jazz saxophonist Archie Shepp (pictured here), writer Langston Hughes, jazz drummer Elvin Jones and other artists. He was also associated with Amiri Baraka and Stokely Carmichael. This wonderful collection (full of copious amounts of poetry, correspondence, fiction, essays, plays and photographs, among other things), the bulk of which is already available, provides researchers with endless resources on this amazing and multi-faceted artist.

A rare promotional poster by The Incredible Bruce Conner for his great, early film Cosmic Ray. The poster came to us housed in an envelope with a letter from Conner on his stationary, which, if you were wondering, is printed with the legend “The Incredible Bruce Conner”. All we can do is agree. 

From today’s new arrivals. All the fetishistic details here. The sun is out and we are cataloguing on the loading dock.
