Arcade Nos. 1-5 [Complete]
London: Arcade, 1964-1967. 8vo, each issue saddle-stapled wraps. The first issue complete with both stickers affixed to cover, the second issue with the rose-tinted spectacle multiple intact and laid in, the third issue with affixed lenticular lips, all as issued.
A complete run of this innovative little magazine at the intersection of pop art and the cut-up; the first issue was a special issue devoted to William S. Burroughs, and included his texts "The Border City," "The Danish Operation," and "The Cut."
Other contributors across the issues include Jane Beckett, Mike Foreman, David Kozubei, Stan Peskett, Geoff Reeve, Ron Sanford, Rufus Segar, Colin Smith, Brian Mills, David Cripps (photographs of Chuck Berry), Georges Sheridan, Edward Mace, Adrianne Leman, and Edward Mace.
Scarce complete, and especially so with the rose-tinted spectacle insert, which is almost always missing.
Maynard & Miles C84, 85, 86. Miller & Price D37.
Some minor toning to the first issue, which has two small dings to the stickers on the cover, else fine. Subsequent issues fine. Item #29915
