Words

Ed Sanders is a legend of New York City’s 1960s LES art scene and after reading his biography and general recounting of the era, Fug You, I’ve become pretty obsessed with his work. Responsible for Fuck You: A Magazine of the Arts, the Peace Eye Bookstore and the folk-rock group The Fugs, as well as numerous books and poetry collections, Sanders seems to be a little closer to the respect he deserves. This book of 72 glyphs, created in 2008 and released this year, features a series of simple coloured pencil drawings imbued with a sense of humour and visual style that have been a trademark of Sanders' poetry and mimeograph printed zines since 1962.
