New York: Avant Garde Media, Inc, 1968. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's pictorial wraps.
Issue 2 (of 14 total) of the groundbreaking arts and culture magazine, published from 1968-1971 by pioneering editor and free speech gadfly Ralph Ginzburg and graphic and type designer Herb Lubalin. This issue features Bert Stern's celebrated portfolio of 12 Day-Glo-doctored serigraphic prints of Marilyn Monroe, drawn from his famous "last sitting" with Monroe, shot at the Bel Air Hotel in 1962 a month before her death. Also includes a profile of Picasso (with a portrait by Richard Avedon), a short story by Roald Dahl, "The Visitor," and an imaginary exchange of letters on pacifism between Freud and Einstein. Minor chipping to fore-ege of rear wrap and last few leaves. Very good. Item #630
