Lettuce Pray. Zephyrus Image.

Lettuce Pray

Healdsburg: Zephyrus Image, 1977. First edition. folded paper airplane and broadside, letterpress and linocut in three colors.

A broadside made by Holbrook Teter and Michael Myers of the ZI in order to crash an early artists' book show at the Berkeley Art Center in 1977; the two handed the broadside out at the event, saying they had just made it "on a wing and a prayer." The text was supplied by Robert Rusk and is from a book of short stories by Malcolm Lowry. One of several ephemeron the group made in order to distribute at specific events, this one perhaps meant to gently provoke some of the seriousness surrounding the canonization of artists' books at the time.
