Angus MacLise papers, 1956-2010

Series IV: Publications, 1967-2008

The publications series includes monographs, broadsides, and periodicals. The majority of the monographs are poetry books, pamphlets, and broadsides, while the periodicals cover a range of arts and music related topics. Many of the periodicals include contributions by friends and associates of MacLise's. Of particular note is Aspen no. 9 Dreamweapon: The Psychedelic Issue, which was curated by Angus and Hetty MacLise.

The series also includes biographical material about MacLise, including the catalog for an exhibition on MacLise mounted at the Boo Hooray Gallery in New York which included many of the items in this collection.
