<Genesis : Grasp 5/6

Cover to the final number (1971) of little lit mag that was Hell's first publishing / editing venture. The trinity: Rimbaud, Artaud, and Theresa Stern (none of whom are in the issue, but Hell liked their hair cuts). Richard would rent an IBM Varityper (you switched type-balls to change fonts) to typeset directly onto paper plates that he printed from on a $100 (used) offset printing press in his apartment. Contributors include R. Meyers, Ernie Stomach (Meyers alter ego), Tom Miller (Verlaine), Steven Schomberg, Andrei Codrescu, Clark Coolidge, Bruce Andrews, Yuki Hartman, Simon Schuchat, and Patty Machine (Oldenburg).
