0 to 9 (Number Four June 1968)

Vito Acconci, Bernadette Mayer (ed.)


New York: Vito Acconci, 1968. First Edition. Side stapled softcover. 114pp., 8.5 x 11 inches

Very Good. Creasing and rubbing to wraps, some age toning along edges. The top staple does not go all the way through in what seems to be a publisher's error. Interior pages are slightly creased to the upper right corner and show minor age toning; rubbing to the first page from the pasted on Yeats cover. Still, a well preserved copy of this fragile publication.

Fourth issue of Acconci and Mayer's much sought after experimental art, fiction, and poetry periodical. The covers for this issue are each unique, created by Acconci and Mayer by stripping the dust jackets from their books at home and affixing them to the covers of each magazine. This example is taken from W.B. Yeats. Contributors to this issue include Clark Coolidge, Harry Mathews, John Giorno, Steve Paxton, Emmett Williams, Bernadette Mayer, Lord Herbert of Cherbury, Lord Stirling, Vito Hannibal Acconci, Jackson Mac Low, Larry Freifeld, Barrett Shaw, Dick Higgins, Bern Porter, Sol LeWitt, Hannah Weiner, Dan Graham, George Bowering, John Perreault, Phil Corner, and Rosemary Mayer.
