London: The Builder, n.d. (1964)
17.5 x 21cm, 52pp. Oversize printed orange wrappers. A single number of this remarkably on point small journal which has here essays on dsh, John Furnival, Henri Chopin, David Hockney (all with illustrations) and Ian Hamilton Finlay who has contributed two works in b/w and there is an uncredited portrait drawing of the poet. One article of note is dsh's translation of Garnier's 'Spacialist Manifesto' which Chopin responds to.
Sadly the inner text block has come away from the wrappers but this is a rare and very early item.
