The Dead Language Press was founded by Piero Heliczer in the late 1950s. The editions were usually published in a shady fly-by-night manner that consistently realized paper objects of breathtaking beauty. These publications are very hard to find, and have been quite difficult for antiquarian book dealers to contextualize until relatively recently. The stuff looks like a more rugged, more punk rock Semina. Heliczer would print using busted up type, incomplete alphabets, and lie-beg-borrow-steal paper stock for these masterpieces of stealth letterpress. There are few finer examples of the visionary work of the global small press/little magazine network of the 1950s and 1960s, showcasing what amazing publications could be realized with little or no money. The Dead Language Press published masterpieces like Jack Smith’s The Beautiful Book and Henk Marsman and Gregory Corsoís A Pulp Magazine For The Dead Generation. A prolific filmmaker and actor as well as poet and printer, Heliczer also collaborated with Andy Warhol, Ira Cohen, Wallace Berman, William S. Burroughs, Lou Reed, La Monte Young, and myriad other downtown notables on films, performances, and publications throughout the 1960s. To celebrate Boo-Hooray published Piero Heliczer & The Dead Language Press - A Bibliography in a 2-volume set. Orders included a bonus DVD, Piero Heliczer/Walter Cronkite’s The Making Of An Underground Film, featuring the earliest known footage of the Velvet Underground in its entirety. Sold out fast. Limited Edition with CD of Walter Cronkite on CBS TV presenting the Velvet Underground. N° de réf. du libraire 66
