Ginsberg x Hell (beatpunk folio)


A folio with a plethora of never-seen-before goods: a zine containing two stories about the beats (Ginsberg) bringing a homage to punk (Hell) and punk kind of returning the favor; a fascimile Ginsberg inscribed and signed broadside; a CBGB bootleg xeroxed poster; a silkscreen patch to spice up your battle jacket; a safetly pin to hold your torn punk outfit together... And all this inside a shiny silkscreened jacket.
The cause for this publication was the acquisition of a broadside that Allen Ginsberg dedicated to his then NYC neighbor Richard Hell: 'Punk Rock Your My Big Crybaby'. Beats meet Punk. Featuring texts by beat aficionado René van der Voort and punk romanticist Mr. Pelham.
