This listing is for the Now Now magazine that you see in the photos. It was printed at Impressions by Ari Publications, 3170 Mission Street, San Francisco in 1965. My research tells me that it is rare or scarce. It measures close to 8 ½ by 6 7/8 inches. Counting the inside of the covers it has approximately 70 pages.
Includes contributions by: Philip Whalen, Gerard Malanga, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Diane Wakoski, Ann Plymell, Alan Ginsberg, Alan Russo, William S. Burroughs, Ken Irby and many others. Contains art work, poetry, photos and stories or articles. Have not read the whole thing.
The condition is much like you see it in the 24 photos after the general description. There are notes in pen at the end of a poem by Ken Irby.
I wonder if they were made by the poet. There are no other pen marks. The covers have apparently browned some from age.There are some stains and very minor soil inside of and on the outside of the back cover. There are some lines on the inside of the front cover that I think are imperfections in the paper.
A slight line shows across the front of the front cover that might be from a bend. A photo shows a crease and a stain or soil across a corner of the first leaf.
5 pages have a brown discoloration or stain along the front edge that is like you see in a photo. Several more pages have much lighter and smaller versions of the same type of discoloration. One page has some slight rippling of the paper along the front edge. I do not know why. Otherwise, this magazine is generally fine and as shown.
My photos should give you a good idea of its general condition. I guarantee this magazine to be as described and represented by the 24 photos after the general description. The photos are part of the description. Please look at all of them.
Please know that the lighting in my photos is uneven and that there might be shadows or reflections. The colors on my monitor look close to but not exactly like the actual colors. Different monitors may show different colors. I often say that an item measures or weighs close to because in my opinion no measurements are exact and some things are difficult to measure. Often, I have a double wall box custom made for larger items and that might result in a short delay.When I use packing peanuts, they are usually biodegradable. Sometimes, I use used boxes.
