4to, illustrated, original pictorial boards. As new. First edition. From 1963 to 1978 Joe Brainard created more than one hundred works of art that appropriated the classic comic strip character Nancy and sent her into an astonishing variety of spaces, all electrified and complicated by the incongruity of her presence. The Nancy Book is the first collection of Brainard';s Nancy texts, drawings, collages and paintings, with full page reproductions of over fifty works, several of which have never been exhibited or published before. The Nancy Book also includes original essays by Ann Lauterbach and Ron Padgett as well as collaborations with Bill Berkson, Ted Berrigan, Robert Creeley, Frank Lima, Frank O';Hara, Ron Padgett and James Schuyler.
