X-Ray Number Seven: Fall 1998

Notes: The seventh installment of this literary journal combining found objects, broadsides, and tipped-in materials. Some contributors made 226 copies of their work (the entire print run); others sent things in to the editor who printed them (letterpress for broadsides). The contents were velobound with acetate wrappers. The covers are three-piece assemblies, each featuring a letter. The contributors to this issue include Charles Bukowski, Billy Childish, Hubert Selby Jr., Bern Porter, and many others.

The Bukowski contribution is a printed broadside poem titled "The Word." There is also a laid in original color photograph by Michael Montfort (4-7/8 by 3-1/2 inches) of Bukowski standing in his doorway.

This issue includes two loose pieces, a photocopied "thanks for parking so close" flier and a sheet with instructions beginning, "Remove shape card...." The final bound leaf is in Braille.

7 by 8-1/2 inches.

Edition + Condition: A fine example, with a letter E on the cover. This is copy 190 of 200. With the original plastic bag (rather wrinkled).

Publication: San Francisco: X-Ray Book Company, 1998.
