Notes: Granary Books states: "In The Nam was first made as a one-of-a-kind collaborative book in 1967-68. The original was passed back and forth between Ted Berrigan and George Schneeman for about a year, remaining in the hands of one or the other for weeks or even months at a time—poet and artist each adding, subtracting, working over words and images. The materials used were pen and ink, white acrylic paint and collage. The present edition is a simulation of the original and was printed letterpress, in several colors, from magnesium plates on Rives 300 gm paper by Philip Gallo at The Hermetic Press. 20 hors commerce, 50 for sale, each numbered and signed by Berrigan and Schneeman".
