Magazine. Art. Books. MIMEO MIMEO is a forum for critical and cultural perspectives on artists' books, typography and the mimeo revolution. This periodical features essays, interviews, artifacts, and reflections on the graphic, material and textual conditions of contemporary poetry and language arts. MIMEO MIMEO 5 opens with a lost and found (and lost and found again) essay on mimeo culture by mimeo-legend Paul Blackburn. We are particularly honored to have two interviews in this issue: one with Bay Area poet and printer Lyn Hejinian on Tuumba Press and the other with Larry Fagin, New York poet and editor of Adventures in Poetry. Steve Clay discusses Robert Creeley's library with a focus on his copy of Presences and James D. Sullivan illuminates the little-known Gallery Upstairs. Other essays include: Abel Debritto on Charles Bukowski getting famous; Bill Stewart on the history of Vamp & Tramp Booksellers; Stephanie Anderson on Alice Notley's Chicago; Michael Klausman on poetry LP art; Alan Loney on the graphic qualities of poetry; and a suite of images from a forthcoming anonymous artist's book entitled Ark Codex.
