FRANK KUENSTLER, Archive

Envelope with stamped title and hand-written signature and date (Octobeer '78), containing a cardboard box produced by the Peerless Weighing and Vending Machine Corporation with 200 weighing machine tickets - small cards bearing on one side a photograph of a movie star and on the other a piece of advice, e.g. "Though you are a great believer in hard work, you can play with equal zest."
Kuenstler gave me this publication at the Samll Press Fair in New York in 1978. The only other publication of his that I know of is 'Lens', published by Film Culture in 1964, which is an 'anti-book' containing paragraph after paragraph of mostly random words, dots and capital letters, composed between 1952 and 1964. Definitely a book worthy of Borges's Library of Babel!
