The catalog has a brief preface by Oliver Harris as well as a fascinating essay by Jim Pennington discussion WSB's relationship with Melville Hardiment. The photographs are great too. Highly recommend that you all check it out.
The show opens on 5 February to celebrate Burroughs' 101st birthday and will exhibit for the first time photographs of William Burroughs dating from his stay in the UK in 1960. The photographs reveal the surprising location of the iconic portrait that is familiar to most Beat bibliophiles from the cover of the LP Call Me Burroughs (Paris, 1965/New York, 1966).
For this exhibition, new prints from the original negatives have been made and magnificent limited editions (7 copies of each print) are published by Vargas Organisation, London.
