(Kent, Corita)

Damn Every Thing but the Circus.

Kent, Corita (illus.)

NY: Holt, Rienhart, and Winston, 1970. Square octavo. Signed limited first edition. Unpaginated, + 30 plates in a portfolio. Kent's alphabet lauds the democratic vivacity of circuses, taking its cue from the e. e. cummings quotation that titles the book. Other quotations, these from a variety of figures, including Camus, Thoreau, and Emerson, supplement the sweeping dayglo illustrations that both decorate and enhance each letter. Bound in black cloth-covered boards with illustrated endpapers. Some bumps to corners, else near fine in near fine dust wrapper. Separate sheets housed in cardstock chemise. All protected in slipcase. This copy still in original publisher's shrinkwrap, with price sticker. Item #31189
