Single sheet folded twice: 9 x 7 1/4 in. (46 x 37 cm folded to 23 x 19 cm), red and black printed on mustard yellow paper on both sides. Poster for "an exhibition held at The William Benton Museum of Art and sponsored by The University of Connecticut Library, Storrs, Connecticut, March 12-April 15, 1973." "Issued in an edition of 750 copies on April 1st 1973, as a souvenir of the Olson-Cagli exhibit. The poem by Charles Olson and the drawing by Corrado Cagli are from the Charles Olson Archives at the University of Connecticut Library." Poem, also known as :The Man of Magic", by Charles Olson; the Cagli drawings originally done for a proposed set of Tarot cards, a collaboration between artist and poet. Despite the rather large printing - 750, quite uncommon: eight copies found in institutions, although undoubtedly there are more, and scarce in commerce. Folded, as presumably most were, a lightly wrinkled, but still near fine.
