Hands Up! - Edward Dorn (1964)

"In the previous post, Tom Raworth discussed printing Edward Dorn’s From Gloucester Out on a small platen letterpress in 1964 just after Hands Up! appeared from Totem Press in cooperation with Cornith Books out of the Eighth Street Bookshop. ... As Raworth mentioned, letterpress wasn’t particularly artsy or extravagant in those times, and domestic offset presses made it possible to produce larger editions at a low cost with relatively little technical skill. Download a searchable PDF of Edward Dorn’s early book, HANDS UP!"
