DEATH IS A FORM OF IGNORANCE: Mixed Media.

Edition: First printing.

Charleston, WV: Parchment Gallery Graphics, (1996.). SIGNED first edition - A collection of pages from 3 of his notebooks, in which Baraka merges the printed word with graphic design, covering a period of over 30 years, from the 1950s when he was in Greenwich Village with Frank O'Hara and Larry Rivers. Published in conjunction with an exhibit being held at the University of Charleston. Although the introduction mentions 450 copies, the editor, William Plumley stated that the actual edition was 250, of which approximately half were signed on the title page. This is one of the SIGNED copies. (Baraka has also corrected the misprint in his name on the title page) Baraka defies classification - a beat poet, a playright, an artist, a member of the New York school - but perhaps most proudly a black activist. 34 pages, large format (approximately 8x11), inside sheets matte finish, fine paper, printed in black and white, brief introduction, biographical information and back cover by Plumley. A full color image of the black and white one on the cover is tipped inside the front cover.

Condition: Near fine in stapled, glossy illustrated wrappers (upper corner slightly bent)
