All housed in a protective plastic sleeve. Raymond Edward "Ray" Johnson, known primarily as a collagist and correspondence artist, was a seminal figure in the history of Neo-Dada and early Pop art. This issue was published as a sort of memorial to Ray. "This is not the document of Ray Johnson wall art. It's not about his famous collages or what remains in museums and for sale in galleries. It's an issue about the 'atmosphere' of Ray Johnson--the element, the ambient specifics of who he was and what he did. Years in the making, it's an homage to the Ray Johnson who made communication, letterwriting, and otherwise unlikely creative gestures his art. It's about Ray's correspondences seen and not seen, sent or otherwise, and his notions of the world that he caused to flow between islands of friends, acquaintances and strangers." -- Charlton Burch, Editor (Excerpt from the editor's letter); "Partake of the elixir that is Ray Johnson. This artist of unlikely means took communication, correspondence and performance as his artforms recombining them into an intuited collage of impossible dimensions. In addition to healthy doses of his art you'll find reflections, reminiscences and interviews by significant players brought within Ray's creative circle. Plus this issue includes an audio CD of Ray from recordings by Nick Maravell. Other contributors include William S. Wilson, Dick Higgins, Alison Knowles, Arthur Secunda & Matthew Rose, Marie Tavroges Stillkind, Richard C, Ed Plunkett, Peter Frank, Geoffrey Hendricks, Henry Martin, John Held, Jr., Clive Phillpot, Coco Gordon, Joan Harrison, Richard P. Meyer, Richard Connolly, Anne Collins & Sheila Sporer, Mike Crane and Robert Buecker among others." - from the publisher's web site.
