    BLACK IS.

    Edition: Paperback original - first printing.

    New York: Grove Press, (1968). First edition - A book of aphorisms which take on the stereotypes of what being Black in the US is like.

Each is printed in white lettering on black paper with an illustration by Ann Weisman on the facing page. Unpaginated.

    Condition: Very good (some rubbing to the edges of the covers) Uncommon in the first printing.
