Printed by the authors on a No. 1200 (11 x 14) Multigraph Offset Press with a No. 296 Head ~ Davidson Feeder; on Mohawk Construction Paper (80#). Hand-numbered copy #67 out of 1,000 copies and SIGNED by both authors. An impressively elaborate production employing multicolored paper stock, planograph prints, hand-lettering, perforations, and inserts. With an appendix: "13 articles commissioned for this Published Score by the Authors, from 6 Internationally Known Critics who discuss & analyze Various Aspects of The Traveler." As noted in their Preface, the ambitious intent of the authors was for a complete audio/visual performance: "Poems set to Music and presented simultaneously in an Ordered Manner with Paintings: the latter projected on a Screen by means of Kodachrome Slides and the former recorded on Tape, or L.P. record." The first leaf of vol. 1 has pulled away from comb binding, else all others intact; straw binding torn/unraveled in places, but overall a VG set with contents fresh and bright. Item #02825
