Hermes Past the Hour

Taos: Estes Es Press, 1963. First edition. 8vo, [36] pp, spiral-bound in boards illustrated with appropriated images from men's magazines pasted over boards, with titles letterpressed in silver. Illustrated with tipped in found images from nudist or erotic magazines.

One of a series of brilliant artists' books made by Crews. Each copy incorporates different found images from popular magazines, many of nude men and women, making each copy of the same title a different work. Furthermore, each book contains a great deal of variation with the poems which are included, each typeset and treated differently. Crews was the American Pessoa, and a criminally under-recognized book artist and poet-publisher.
