Jean Genet: WHAT REMAINS OF A REMBRANDT TORN INTO FOUR EQUAL PIECES AND FLUSHED

£100.00Price

1988 79pp Hanuman mini (3” x 4”) paperback. VG.

 

From the library of Spydeee Gasmantell, with his signature on prelims. "Little Bas and I read a lot of Jean Genet. His open writing about what were then illegal acts was brave. This is atypical of his writings which are usually about the Parisian demimonde and homosexual exploits."

 

This is #22 in the Hanuman series started by the editor/publisher Raymond Foye in collaboration with the Transavanguardia artist Francesco Clemente. Hanuman was the favourite Hindu deity of both men, so they named their press after him. The Hanuman Books series has published works by William Burroughs, Allen Ginsburg, Patti Smith, Richard Hell, Jack Kerouac, William de Kooning and others. The tiny format of the book is based on prayer books in India. They are hand-made by the Kalakshetra Press in India, the inside cover of each book is coloured with deeply saturated tones to produce a limited edition.
