Fuck You: A Magazine of the Arts, Number 2


Ed Sanders, New York, 1962. Staple-bound mimeographed leaves. Unpaginated, 8.5 x 11 inches

Very Good. Minor edgewear with dampstaining to upper right corner of pages throughout. Still, a solid example of this fragile early publication. 

Issue number two of this key publication in the mimeograph revolution. Fuck You, A Magazine For The Arts ran for thirteen issues between 1962 and 1965, featured contributors comprising most of the principal cast of that period's counterculture scene, and is now acknowledged as one of the main freeways connecting the end of the Beats to the beginning of the Yippies. Around 500 copies of each issue were produced, firstly on the Catholic Worker's Speed-O-Print and later on an A.B. Dick stencil duplicator. They were then distributed free of charge wherever Sanders found himself. Contributors to this issue include Margaret X, Eric Weinberger, Ed Sanders, Bob Gore, Jim Forest, and Nelson Barr.
