np (nineteen printed components + advertisements, one film reel, and five flexi-discs housed in a printed paper-over-boards box, profusely illustrated in b&w. Designed by Brian O'Doherty, David Dalton, and Lynn Letterman. Edited by Irish-born, New York-based artist and critic Brian O'Doherty, this combined fifth and sixth installment of "Aspen" magazine from 1967 is an elaborate collection of commissioned projects by avant-garde artists, writers, composers, and filmmakers - heavy on the Minimal and Conceptual. Dedicated by the editor to Stephane Mallarme, among its notable components are a recording of William S. Burroughs reading an excerpt from "Nova Express", "Smoke" - a miniature assemble-it-yourself sculptural multiple by Tony Smith, and "Serial Project #1, 1966" - the very first artist book by Sol LeWitt (cited on page 28 of Giorgio Maffei and Emanuele de Donno's "Sol LeWitt: Artist's Books" as well as entry number one in Alicia Legg's "Books by the Artist" bibliography in MoMA's 1979 "Sol LeWitt). The sole double issue of eleven total published, it includes contributions by or about Sigmund Bode, Roland Barthes, George Kubler, Susan Sontag, Samuel Beckett, Jack MacGowan, Burroughs, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Max Neuhaus, Morton Feldman, Smith, Hans Richter, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Stan VanDerBeek, Robert Rauschenberg, Merce Cunningham, Marcel Duchamp, Richard Huelsenbeck, Naum Gabo, Antoine Pevsner, Douglas MacAgy, Michel Butor, Dan Graham, LeWitt, Brian O'Doherty, and Mel Bochner. An internally most presentable example of this exceedingly uncommon item complete with the usually missing film reel and advertisement folder showing a bit of age-toning and occasional mild foxing to some of the printed sections. The copy of LeWitt's "Serial Project #1, 1966" is exceptionally crisp and white. The publisher's printed exterior box exhibits the usual overall wear, creasing, age-toning, and soiling along with some mild insect damage and compression. Still in all this is a complete and intact copy of this sixties gem that looks better in hand than it describes that has been priced accordingly. Roaring Fork Press, Inc., New York, 1967. Illustrated Portfolio. Condition: Good. First Edition. Arts Periodical.

The hearts-and-mindiest number of this first letter magazine, contemporaneously shelved between Alcheringa and Avalanche: born *and* made. Artfully edited and published by Phyllis "Danielle" Johnson and guest designed by George "Georgie" Maciuanas (because of whom it is sometimes called "the Fluxus issue") it is frequently missing a section or thirteen. This one is nevertheless complete in fourteen sections: Section 1 contains an editorial note made by guest editor Dan Graham who was born 14,218 days ("in Urbana, Illinois at 2:20 A.M. March 31, 1942") and 2.85000000 from the guest cataloger. Expected wear and light darkening to Jo Baer's cover. Section 2 by David Antin could've been printed today. Section 3 by Atkinson / Baldwin same. Section 4 by Philip Glass has a short crease at the margins and a tiny fleck under the e in "player". Section 5, a split phonosheet by Mac Low / Young, is clean and plays perfectly. Section 6 a sheet split chiasmatically between Steve Rich and Richard Serra looks almost as bright and fresh as the day it was printed more than half a century ago. Section 7 by La Monte Young almost the same. Section 8 by Yvonne Rainer almost the same save a margin of light fading. Section 9 by Jo Baer could've been printed tomorrow. Section 10 by Jackson Mac Low is evenly faded but utterly unperforated. Section 11 by Dennis Oppenheim appears as brown as the paper it was printed on. Section 12 by Robert Smithson same save for a nearly invisible closed tear along the first fold ~ like section 13 by Edward Ruscha it is so suitable for framing it is often missing. "Fourteen dollars and twenty-eight cents is more attractive than fourteen dollars because of the twenty-eight." (Robert Ashley). 1970. No Binding. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition.

Fourteen items (thirteen printed pieces, including folder, and one recording), housed in two-part printed folder. All elements are present (save for the subscription form, often lacking), and all are in very good or fine condition, with the following very slight flaws: minute rumpling to edge of Oppenheim/Morris sheet; one-inch closed tear at fold in Smithson poster; light foxing to outer covers of Ruscha poster (not affecting image side); rumpling to edges and toning of folder. Sometimes referred to as the Fluxus issue of Aspen (primarily due to the design, by George Macunias), this foundational artist's publication includes works in various forms (pamphlets, posters, broadsheets) by David & Eleanor Antin; Terry Atkinson & Mike Baldwin; Philip Glass; Jackson Mac Low; LaMonte Young; Steve Reich; Richard Serra; Yvonne Rainer; Jo Baer; Dennis Oppenheim; Robert Morris; Robert Smithson; Ed Ruscha; and the editor Dan Graham. The flexible soundsheet features recordings of works by Jackson Mac Low ("Young Turtle Asymmetries") and LaMonte Young ("Drift Study 31 1 69").Rarely found complete.

Aspen: The Magazine in a Box. Volume 1, Number 2. The second issue of the innovative and shape-shifting magazine, described by publisher Phyllis Johnson as "the first three-dimensional magazine." Named after the town in which it was conceived, it was not intended to be a run-of-the-mill art magazine. It would instead be a "storehouse," a multimedia magazine in a box that would house artist projects, writings, and objects, all of which demanded a new kind of reader an active participant. Each issue came in a customized box or folder filled with materials in a variety of formats, including booklets, flexidisk phonograph recordings, posters, postcards and reels of super-8 movie film. Furthermore, each issue had its own designer and editor, providing a wide degree of artistic originality. It was published on an irregular schedule from 1965 to 1971 in a total run of ten issues. New York: Aspen Magazine, 1966. All items in near fine condition, with the exception of 'Farewell to a Canyon' which is best described as very good due to a bump to the wraps.
