About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Electric tulips 5.1.with an appreciation by Alessandro S. Strega and accompanied by diverse notes and drawings by Gallo, Phil.

Description:

Edition limited to 50 copies, this being one of 45 (there are 5 artist's proofs); small tall folio, pp. [24]; illustrations in the text (1 full-page and in color), large double-page folding plate printed in color; original stiff orange wrappers with gilt vignette, the whole in a plexiglass slipcase. As new, at the published price. Electric Tulips 5.1 was conceived as a dialogue between an imaginary literary critic (Gallo) and the poet (Gallo), and revolves around the writing and presentation of his poem, Electric Tulips 5.1. The essay which results, Future Preterite, by the esteemed critic Alessandro S. Stompanado is intended to emulate that of the essay by James Joyce, written under the pseudonym Vladimir Dixon; and which appeared in the Sylvia Beach publication of 1929: Our Exagmination Round His Factification for Incamination of Work in Progress, in which Joyce writes an appreciation of his own novel, Ulysses. As such, the book is a multi-layered pastiche of both literary and typographic treatments, along with a magnificent double gatefold presentation of the poem in eight colors (each of the seven stanzas in a separate color and the seminal tulip in an eighth); the type all set by hand and printed letterpress and polymer from Permanent Headline Open from the now defunct foundry Ludwig & Mayer.
