Iowa City, IA The Drawing Legion 1982 First Edition Stiff Wraps in Paper Jacket Fine Near-Fine Book 
24-page "record" of this piece of performance devised by Andringa and Herbert and loosely based on Camillo's memory theatre. The pages are primarily visual--drawings by Durer, Palladio, Rejlander, a photograph of the two authors--plus meaningful quotes. One illustration has the "cherry" sticker applied. In Fine condition in stiff wraps with a printed overwrapper--this has a slight crease to the lower front corner. Unusual to find documentation of Andringa's performances, especially in this condition.

6 Monk, Meredith Juice: A Theatre Cantata in Three Installments
New York The House 1969 First Edition Printer Wrapper Near-Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
The installments were performed at the Guggenheim (November 7 at 7 and 9:30 PM), the Minor Latham Playhouse (November 29, 30, and December 1 at 7 and 10 PM), and The House (December 7, continuous from 5:30 PM to midnight). This remarkable survival of the early work of a master of performance arts consists of 8 mimeographed pages stapled between two cover sheets: red covers, with a graphic/pictorial title on the front, and blank on the rear. Inside, a page of credits for the production, the contributors, and the sponsors; pages 2 through 7 describe what was supposed to happen in each installment in words and diagrams; and a final page dedicating the production to Janet Zalamea, who "began the violin score" and died, apparently, before the production was realized. Not only is this material in near-Fine condition, with very little wear at all, it is perhaps unique because page 2 is duplicated (the "extra" page does not quite line up, so has received more wear to the edges than the other pages). In all, a historical, wonderful piece of documentation.

Don Delillo, Sam Shepard, and Kurt Vonnegut, among others, contributed words, and there are some archival production photographs of Steppenwolf at work, but the true glory of this book is the portraits Skrebneski made of the founding members---not just one each, posed, but several of each actor in movement. Backed up with details of the Theatre's history as well, so a useful resource. They STILL have faces! Fine hardcover binding in Fine dust jacket covered in Mylar.
